Every Sunday, I drive by this cemetery and finally decided to stop in and have a look around.
|Apparently these were popular because there were many headstones like this - a sandwich plate set up where the bolt holding everything together had rusted away thus spilling the letters and dates every which way.|
|Broken head stone|
|The muscari (aka grape hyacinth) was naturalizing all over the place.|
|I'm used to seeing this flower in white (and there were plenty), so having a pink version was pretty nifty.|
|Waiting for an airplane|
|More naturalizing muscari - the cemetery irises will probably bloom a in a few weeks - they are wee things (I bet they got mowed over earlier this year and are recovering).|
I'll have to make some visits throughout the year just to see how things change through the seasons, as well as take my actual camera and get some photo practice in.
