Angels and Flower


Every summer, I bought flowers to plant at my dad's grave, because it's a part of my family's tradition and every year, the cemetery added more interesting statues. You can say that I'm officially weird since I found this giant angel or saint quite fascinating.


The angel stood looking down directly at my dad's place of rest, and on a sunny hot day it just looked magnificent. I love the powerful wings on this statue.


This little angel was sitting in the shade, counting her flowers and smelling them. She was beautiful, but I couldn't get a clear picture of her face.


If you want to see flowers, the cemetery has plenty too. I love the color of this one, and it seems to bloom beautifully in the full hot sun.

  1. Im exactly like you --- i am fascinated by angels or any cool statue such as this! She is stunning.

    Also you wee angel. (next time try your flash out doors) sometimes it shows off exactly what we want to capture.

    Thanks so much for joining with us at Friday Finding Beauty.

  5. when I was in Philippines I planted some flowers in my mom's grave too, but then because there is no season there, I was glad when I visited, the flower I planted still alive and blooming.

  7. Such a huge statue of an angel. It must have been overwhelming to see one so majestic. The one with the flower is so cute. Good capture, Icy!

  9. Icy, the cemetery can be a beautiful spot both for flowers and statues. I like both statues but I have to say my heart belongs to that little angel with the flowers. Nice shots.

  10. I also take flower photos in the cemetery sometimes.
    Your photos are beautiful, I like the little angel in the shadow best.

    Thanks for your remark on my header, nobody seamed to notice it, except you.

    Have a beautiful week!

  12. I guess that would make me officially weird too since I also find it fascinating. I like the shadow cast by the angel in your first photo. Great photos Icy.

  13. I like angels, too, and it is nice that this one looks over your father's grave. I think it's nice that the cemetery has many flowers planted. Some graves don't get flowers and it makes the whole places look nicer.
