Cemetery in Bloom-Part two of the cemetery stroll


The cemetery stroll continues focusing on the the flowers in bloom amongst the stone garden.
Yes, you are seeing correctly. The azalea bush is growing from the grave. Life amongst the dead.
Azaleas in bloom beside a marble mosoleum.
There are several of these gorgeous camilla bushes throughout the churchyard.


White flowers shroud the grave behind.

The stillness of stone monuments peeking through the flowering of new life.


Freedom bought by the lives of those before us.



Thanks for strolling through the gardens with me. Tomorrow we will look at the gravesites and mystique of this beautiful cemetery.


I suppose that 'cemeteries' are in the air as I was inspired by a post by my friend, Lori at Before the Stroke of Midnight blogspot. Then today Jodie at Everything Vintage blogspot posted pictures of her stroll through a beautiful cemetery (we didn't realize that we were both doing cemetery posts until we visited each other:). How ironic! Perhaps spring and cemeteries are in the air! Check out the cemetery posts on their blogspots-they're amazing!

Thank you so much for taking me on a lovely tour,
