Thomas Wolfe’s Angel

We walked around the Oakdale Cemetery yesterday afternoon and even though our moods were sobered by the surroundings, I took some photos.

I wanted to link with Mary at the Dear Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.

That's a very nice cemetary, so many different types of head stones.
The large angel is beautiful.

I'll be following your links... Cemeteries are some of the most lovely, quiet places. That's why I really enjoy taking a stroll through one.

I know it sounds strange, but I do love cemeteries. My Mosaic Monday post pictured Captiva Island's historic cemetery!
Your mosaic is beautifully peaceful!

This was so interesting! I read "Look Homeward Angel" many years ago when I was in high school. I remember it was a sober story and I'm sure if I re-read it now I'd understand so much more about the storyline.
