Tombstone and Daffodils at The Old City Cemetery

The Old City Cemetery, Lynchurg, Viginia’s most visited tourist site, is a nature-lovers paradise.  The daffodils throughout the cemetery are just about finished blooming, due to our extremely mild winter and early spring.  The pictures included with this blog are from several grave sites throughout the cemetery.  Some daffoldils grace actual gravestones and plots, others are blooming where surely there is a grave below but the grave marker has long since disintegrated.
