This is NOT my Georgia Garden. This beautiful spot is located a few hours down the road from me in Savannah, Georgia. Bonaventure Cemetery is the resting place for little Gracie Watson along with many others. Click HERE to learn about Gracie. This cemetery is known for many unsettled souls such as little Gracie herself. Click HERE to read of the Ghost's within Bonaventure to include ghost dogs!
Gracie's statue is surrounded by an iron fence and beautiful garden type setting.
There are grand monuments with weathered parts. Such as this one with damaged wing and fingers.
A plot holds soldiers of different branches of service and wars.
This angel has been around for over 100 years.
A perfect setting with Live Oak Trees filled with Spanish Moss.
Look closely to see the differences within this one.....
And this one. Similar yet so different. These brought back memories of European Churches.
Breath taking views all over this place.
Is this place a Cemetery or Garden?
Difficult to tell until you see certain signs such as a Cross.
I can visualize this marker within a garden. Urn filled with flowing greenery.
Moss drapes the trees in all directions.
Again, Garden or Cemetery?
Small knee high statues such as St. Francis with floppy ear bunny and bird make me smile.
Angels lifting upwards.
And angels looking downward by the river bluff.
Green leaves peeking out behind moss. Kind of eerie looking don't ya think?
Doesn't this just talk to you?
Vines climbing upon this oak tree as if in a race with the monument.
Beautiful scenes with every turn of the head.
Same statue as above with different angle. Makes for a different looking statue.
The beauty and garden type setting, keep me captivated with every visit.
A place to stroll, enjoy the peace and reflect upon life.
Statues such as this are found in large formal gardens, right.
I was eyeing the iron fencing.
As well as this gate. I could so see these in a garden. But is this not a garden?
This shots has a lot to say. Palm tree, Palmetto tree, Live Oak tree, Spanish Moss, Grass and Monuments. Garden or Cemetery?
Reality hits upon this sighting. A small grave where a child must reside. Beautiful yet sad. Bonaventure Cemetery calls to me whenever I am in Savannah. I enjoy strolling around as birds sing from above. The roll of the river below the bluff. Enjoy the sweet breeze of the ocean air. Watch the many butterflies fluttering about. I don't know of a more perfect spot on earth. I know there may be ghost's strolling within but when my time comes, I hope I can be so lucky to be in such a wonderful spot for eternity. What is your answer; CEMETERY OR GARDEN?, In the Garden...
