My husband and I were at Brooklyn, New York's historic, 172 year old Green-Wood Cemetery again this weekend, taking part in a volunteer session where we are assisting the cemetery to remove important papers regarding each grave plot from their storage in envelopes and then placing them into archival quality folders to help preserve them for the future. Whenever we finish our work we take a stroll through some of the 478 acres of beautiful hilly grounds, and I take photographs. The photo mosaic above (all photos can be seen enlarged by clicking on them) is of some of the many angel monuments and other statuary.
Spring flowers and blossoming trees were in evidence everywhere in the cemetery, as you can see by this photo mosaic. Robins were plentiful and hard at work looking for bugs to eat.
While walking on one of the highest hills of the cemetery I was excited to spot a famous statue in the distance outside of the Gothic Arches of the cemetery's 5th Ave entrance. Can you see it?
A closer view -- look to the right.
It is the Statue of Liberty in New York harbor!
From another hill in the cemetery there is another pretty vista that can be seen through the branches of a flowering cherry tree.
It is a distant view of the Empire State building in Manhattan. It was really a lovely day to enjoy the Spring weather and all the rebirth of nature. I hope you spent your weekend in an equally wonderful way!
