latest favorite

This is one of my favorite photos taken last year in October when we visited a beautiful cemetery in St. Francisville at Grace Episcopal Church.


The theme at texture tuesday is latest favorite. This is a favorite and it was sort of taken lately in comparison to how old the cemetery is. And I thought it was the perfect image for adding textures.


Don't you want to see the cemetery too? It really is a beautiful place shaded by lots of very old live oaks.


And in the fall these lovely flowers pop up all over the grounds. Does anyone know the name of this flower?

  2. Hi! Your photos are lovely!
    I'd love to give you directions to Elk River Falls. There are also some other fun things to do in the area of Blowing Rock and Valle Crucis. You could make a day of it since you will have to drive 2 hours to get there!

  7. Love it. I've seen those before but can't recall the name.

    And, besides my photo blog, I also have a cemetery blog. I fell in love with them doing genealogy.

  16. Both versions of your flower are really beautiful. I've never seen that kind of flower before... it looks like an umbrella in a storm, or several conductors leading an orchestra, or..... (I do get a bit loopy at times, sorry.) Great work, in any case!
