Photos from my travels near and far from home
This red flower is appealing.
Very good picture, I have been planning to visit a cemetery but I didn't find an opportunity yet.Greetings,Filip
All over the world, people leave symbols of their love on the gravesites of their loved ones. It's a good tradition, I think. Lovely shot, Hal!
I find this a more touching gesture, to leave an amaryllis that hasn't completed its blooming yet, than to leave a pot of already bloomed flowers that will immediately start dying.
Some of the most historical and poignant walks can be undertaken in cemeteries, with the sweetest of artistic beauty evident in headstones etc. Thanks for sharing this Halcyon and bringing back some memories of my forebears in cemeteries here.
A well tended cemetery and grave site -- shows the love!
Flowers are always a reminder of the brevity of life in full bloom.
Ahha ... an Amaryllis ... I wondered.I am surprised that more and more graves are not adorned by living flowers. They are far nicer than vases of cut blooms that can only wilt, and fade, and drop.
The amaryllis is one of my mom's favorite flowers she gets one every Christmas, her name is Mary so she says its her flower.
Thanks for visiting. I love hearing from you.
