There have finally been some nice sunny days after many rainy ones and that means that Ben and I head out for a woodsy spot to look for mushrooms. We haven’t had much luck finding any, but it is always a good excuse for a stroll in the woods. Lately, our favorite spot is bordered by a cemetery and I’ve been studying the headstones.
I always notice the unusual names- Adeliza
Amaryllis- (remember in the Music Man?)
I guess A names were popular for girls in the 1800′s.
There were a number of graves with oak leaf motif- something I haven’t noticed before.
The willows are more common-
The lichen on this one is beautiful. And on the bottom, the inscription says- Noble, Wise and Generous. I think we would all like to be remembered for that.
I love this one- great image and great name-
Ben had better luck finding mushrooms without me.
