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 Hope

Looking to Spring and Easter

For all too long this has been the look out in the Cemeteries this year.  In fact, this picture is from last winter.  This winter was far too nasty for me to be out and taking pictures in Cemeteries.  I am not twenty any longer!  I thought that it would be nice to do a Blog Post of some of the flowers from last year in anticipation of this Spring and Easter.  These are not new photos, but I have in most cases cropped them to show mostly the flowers.

These are very much Easter flowers.  There is a palm cross with lilies in the center.  In many ways this is quite traditional.

Again this is quite traditional.  Tulips are very much Spring and these are quite nice.

This is very beautiful, but not place here by someone.  These are wild flowers.  I have heard them called May Pink.  I am not great at flower naming, but I will a times make an attempt.

I don’t know what these are, but I like them.  This little cluster was off to the edge of the cemetery and these didn’t get mowed.

These were on the side of the same cemetery as were the following two.  The last one is a bush and is quite bright.

I will now post some without need for comment.

In the end the following are not the most beautiful, but they may be the most meaningful.  These are a form of Lilly.  Lilies are symbolic of the resurrection.  Christians will find this  important as the message of Easter and ultimate hope from God.
