St. Patrick's Day

Last week I visited my favorite roadside cemetery -- and it just happened to be St. Patrick's Day.  While walking around looking at the carvings on the stones I spotted some shamrocks.

Someone wondered if the number seven was significant to this family -- since there are seven shamrocks on the stem.  That is an interesting question.

I really went to see the peach orchard behind the cemetery -- it was in bloom.  You can see orchard photos on my other blog.  This is the second time I wrote about the orchard on the blog.  I have also written about this cemetery before.

  1. Old cemeteries have a beauty all their own. I've never seen shamrock in any of the ones I've visited. It's lovely.
