Floral Cemetery

The other day we decided to check out the May flowers over at Old City Cemetery. It was on my list of things to do in Galveston before we move (we missed it last year!). Every spring this graveyard blooms with pretty yellow flowers and I just love the way it looks against the washed out white & grey tombstones. We were walking through trying to find the oldest tombstone, which I think was 1860. I'm sure there's older ones in there. Have to say though, we were a little distracted by a couple taking raunchy photos ON TOP on people's tombstones. People are weird.

It's a pretty lovely cemetery. There's old tombstones, new ones, cracked ones, ornate mausoleums, and simple gravestones. There's a few with interesting stories (and some with secret stories I suppose).
