St. Peter's Cemetery :: Old City :: Philadelphia
A resting ground for some very old souls, indeed. Shades shaded by glorious rosy dogwoods, dappled and in full bloom.
yellow :: limestone
A bright tulip or two nod their heads sleepily in this placid spot.
Limestone tucked in tight under leafy bedcovers.
A very old soul rests here.
Ancient marker cracked, doubled over, sagging with the weight of age.
red tulips :: monument
In the midst of bustling streets, there are pockets of peace and quiet.
pink :: limestone
Lone beauty overseeing this sleeping place.
pink :: dogwood underside
Floral overhang, a winsome canopy for this somnolent site.
Spectral, or, how I spent a glorious Saturday afternoon.
I love this old cemetery, mere blocks from my own sleeping place. It's quite a pretty place to spend a sunny moment, breathing in old history and marveling at the lovely new growth of the fresh season.
I'll be back soon with news of sock knitting that, happily, involves size 1 needles and substantial, sproingy yarn... ahhhh, frogging the two Lorna's Laces socks was vindicating! I'm enjoying my sock knitting all the more now.
Have a relaxing Sunday evening!
