New Life in an old Graveyard

graveyard with weeping cherry and forsythiaSpring is gorgeous in central Virginia. Despite the fears and self-isolation of the Coronavirus, each day:

  • the amount of light increases,
  • the leaves unfurl further,
  • more types of flowers bloom
  • the number of birdsong increases.
  •  the average high increases weekly despite temperature fluctuations


There is new life in this woodland graveyard of St Paul’s, Ivy.  The Church may be closed, but nature thrives  next door.

  1. There is something about those above-ground crypts that are spooky and mesmerizing at the same time. Have you been to the graveyard in Key West? There are a lot of tombstones and crypts with some very pithy sayings such, “I told you I was sick.”
