Cemeteries are unique places in our lives. Some are beautiful, some are historic, and some are even entertaining. There is a quiet sadness about all cemeteries because they are the final resting places of our loved ones. We intend to post pictures here of cemeteries and head stones that are original photographs. We are looking for beauty, dignity, funny and above all something interesting. Feel free to comment and to contribute. We will provide a mail box if you want to contribute.

The Flowers of Easter

Easter is a season of flowers. Because it is positioned in Spring it corresponds with the flower blooming. It also corresponds with the greening and otherwise regrowth associated with Spring. The Easter theme for Christians is Resurrection and the renewal that Spring brings fits right in.

Many people visit the graves of their loved ones near Easter and place flowers on the graves. The ability to do this is sometimes limited by the Cemetery rules. This cemetery allows putting cut flowers out. I do not know any of the families involved but one thing that is obvious is that there is love involved.

Many of the flowers are not only beautiful, but they are costly. For some people the cost is insignificant. For other people it may be too much expense. The economy certainly has hit many very hard. So what does one do when one can't afford the expense of flowers?

Spring is great, because everything is blooming. Some Forsythia does just fine!
