If you go to your local garden centre they will have a large range of cyclamen and pansies in flower now ( very tempting ) and either would make a quick and easy display.

So sorry to hear of your loss its so hard to lose a beloved pet. I agree with Inverglen if you go a to a GC or nursery and pick a perennial or shrub that is in flower now, such as an Anemone, one of the 'Pretty ladies' or one of my favs is Autumn flowering bulb is Schizostylis or 'Kaffir Lily' 'Fenland Daybreak' a very pretty pink. and of course Chrysanthemums will give great mixed or single colour

And I can send you some Kaffir Lily if you would like some from garden?
