Shooting in the Breeze

Spring has sprung around here. Putting laundry on the line is a pleasant experience and no longer means losing digits to the cold!

Clotheslined...

We have crocuses and kids and dogs and sticks…

Jewels in the Roughage

Katherine and I walked to the store in search of more clothespins and stopped in at the old Holy Trinity Cemetery on our way home. Graveyards on a sunny day are such great places for the contrasts and juxtapositions of sunlight and shadow and light on stone.

Light and Line

In one corner of the cemetery is a small, fenced area containing one large tombstone and about ten lilac trees. The trees fill the space available and are bursting out between the fence pailings and rails. I suspect that in a few months, the fence and stone will be invisible.

Incomplete

A simple stone. The biographical data was on the reverse.

Simplicity

A monument built on the site of the old holy Trinity Church in Torbay, Newfoundland.

The plaque reads:

Site of the Holy Trinity Church (stone)1859-1962 Built in the pastorate of Father Edward Troy and consecrated by Bishop Mullock, October 11, 1863. The stone from this church was used to erect the cemetery fence, the altar in the new cemetery, the steps and the foundation of the parish church. This fitting memorial is due to the initiative of The Holy Name Society, Torbay, A.D. 1972 AD MAJORAM DEI GLORIAM

Sited
A detail on a stone. I couldn’t make out the words around the flower as they were obliterated by lichens.
