    Glossy, glazed ceramic floral displays adorn many of the old gravesites at Park Island Cemetery. I am surprised they have survived the years as many gravestones have been attacked by vandals.

    In various states of decay, with broken petals & covered with lichen, cobwebs & leaf litter they are hauntingly beautiful. Click through on a photo to see the whole set (if you dare, I had a hard time choosing which ones to upload)

    Haunting but beautiful at the same time. Great detail in every one, long ago forgotten feelings. Thanks for sharing.
