The Marble Orchard

When I think of Art I think of collections in museums or in fine homes.

I think of famous Artisans who were named somewhere in our history books.

I think of beautiful gardens with sculptures made from marble, bronze and granite.

Very rarely, actually never, do I think of a cemetery

The Green Wood Cemetery

Never would I have ever considered a cemetery to be an art gallery yet the one that houses my deceased family is just that. Take a look at The Green Wood Cemetery and see what some people do when they memorialize their dead and see for yourself what this Historic location is all about.

Have you or did you ever have a chance to go to Cemetery no 1 in New Orleans ?

The art work isn't as magnificent, but still speaks to how people are mourned.. such a crypts reserved for those of a certain organization, or the family crypts (but as I said, the art work isn't at all near a beautiful)

Kinda kwel the process of "burial" in New Orleans

I'm very happy you had a great holiday with your family :D
