a garden

I needed to take my car for a long drive (for reasons you don't really need to know, but it seems the lights don't turn themselves off automatically on this car as they did with my other car, so...)
anyway, after watching the rain fall on the lake for long enough, I decided to drive around a cemetery for awhile. Doesn't everything look so green now that it has rained?
This lovely garden drew me to a closer look.
I didn't actually find the headstone, though there was a bench nearby, which seems to be from the family.

This poem by the garden touched me immensely
(sorry for the rainy blurriness)

  1. Good heavens that's sad..

    1. I know. I got back in my car and wept. I've never done that in any cemetery before.

  2. Such a beautiful tribute to someone who was obviously much loved.

    Beneath Thy Feet

  3. A beautiful tribute..and some wonderful photos!
    What a nice drive.

  4. This is very sad, but I agree that it's a beautiful tribute. :)

    Thanks for sharing this on Taphophile Tragics!

  5. I love the way the world looks right after a rain.

  6. Enchanting memorial garden with delightful tributes. And it's raining here, too, I might add.

  7. Yes, lovely sentiment but now I want to know the story.

  8. It looks like they have put together a memorial garden. We have one at the cemetery near us. That one has a walking path, benches and small mounds were ashes in urns are interred.


Glad you stopped by. For anyone who stumbled here, don't be shy to say 'hi' and let me know you've visited!
