Secret Garden


I feel my time in Lexington growing shorter and there are so many things I still want to see, unfortunately a crazy work schedule means I have to grab opportunity when I can find it.  I had a couple of hours on Saturday and wanted to mix in a walk with a little photo time.  I was also looking for a little quiet time, so I decided to check out the Lexington Cemetery.  I'd read that it was considered one of the most beautiful cemeteries in the country and that the gardens and trees there were beautiful.


I'll admit, it did feel a little strange to take a walk in a cemetery, it was very beautiful.  I found this lovely secret garden between sections and found myself sitting on the bench for a while.  The only thing that could have made it better was to have had a good book to read while I sat there.  It was so peaceful.

I fell in love with this song after one listen this week, it is gorgeous.

Beautiful shots - even if it's in a cemetery. I hope you have a great week!

Beautiful! It does look very peaceful there. I'm originally from KY. Went to college in Richmond. Small world!

The photos are dream-like. We have a beautiful cemetery near our house (Frederick Douglas is buried there among other notables). I've never been there when there weren't several others walking through as well. Nothing as peaceful as the photos here, however.

Beautiful shots sis! You are becoming quite the artist!

Beautiful photo. When I visit my mom and dads I enjoy the beauty of their cemetery yet at times feel like an intruder into the intimacies of the other residents. I did a layout of a cemetery in Austria that was so so beautiful....I'll have to dig it out and put it on my blog.

There's a couple of cemetries around our place and I love to walk in them. They're always so quite and add a bit of green to the surrounding inner-city. You also get to meet some lovely little old ladies in there. :)

I wouldn't mind being buried there. It is beautiful- which for some reason is a strange word to describe a cemetery to me:)

cemeteries are so often forgotten so it's very special that you would visit and take some lovely photos.
