Last weekend, a friend and I went to the Oakland Cemetery in Atlanta, Georgia.
Some may find walking around a cemetery an odd thing to do during a weekend, especially if no family members are buried at the cemetery. For my friend and I, it was a great way to surround ourselves with beauty in the city. The weather was gorgeous, the flowers were blooming, and the history within the cemetery is strong.
The visitor center caught my eye, against the blue sky.

That’s what I said to my friend throughout our walk. The day was perfect – the scenery was perfect – it truly was a perfect day.
Very pretty. And wow, like Kim said.
Thank you, Darla. Come visit, and I’ll show you around the place.
Coincidence. The Thursday before Easter, I have planned to post about visiting the cemetery with my daughter. Still haven’t decided whether to push publish or not.
If you’re pleased with the post, I say ‘publish’ it. I would find it interesting, because I like cemeteries, and I venture to guess others would find it interesting, too.
Great shot of the center, Lenore-y. The colors are uh-mazing.
Thank you, Sheyra-E. That day is going down as one of the most enjoyable days of my life. Did I mention I enjoyed the day? Man, was it ever… perfect!
If you hadn’t told us where this was taken I might have guessed you were visiting a botanical garden when you shot it! So nice!
Pretty nice for a cemetery, eh? The cemetery is a popular one in Atlanta, the Oakland Cemetery. I forget if I mentioned it in the post or not. The day was gorgeous, so the white building really ‘popped’. Glad you liked it, SIG. Thank you!
I love cemetary walks! Lovely!
Me, too, Chris. A great place for quiet reflection.
Nice shot! Love the architecture and vivid colors.
Thank you, Patti.
Gorgeous setting! The building looks like part of a castle. Blessings – Maxi
Thank you, Maxi. I am glad you liked it.
