Ruby Tuesday - 10-27-09

MaryT/theteach hosts this weekly event - photographs of all things red.







I love all the different colors here, including the still quite green ginkgo tree to the right and in front of the red maple.




Lest you think I'm getting a bit goulish hanging out in cemeteries lately, here's something I've been participating in:











Search 37.8 million cemetery records at by entering a surname and clicking search:

I get a notification when someone is requesting a photo of a grave in my area and if I claim it, I go find it and take the photo and post it on the Find-A-Grave website. It's a little bit scavenger hunt (trying to find gravesites that are flush with the ground in the FALL when the leaves are FALLING is challenging!) but I'm enjoying it. I find cemeteries fascinating places and wonder about the stories of the people buried there.

Some of the prettiest fall foliage in our area is in the cemetery.
Great color. Have a wonderful Ruby Tuesday.

Cemeteries are intereting places to visit. You're right about all the stories there. Sounds like a great way to 'uncover' the stones.
Funny how the gingko tree stays green.
