This is a very nice photograph. I have never said that about a cemetery before.

In spite of the tree infection, the photograph is love color and composition. You may know that the American Chestnut tree was devastated in the first half of the 20th century when Japanese tree stock was imported that had an Asian bark fungus disease.

3-4 billion (yes, billion) American chestnuts died. We have only hundreds left in places outside their original range, and they are also endangered in Canada. I hope your problems won't be nearly as severe as ours. I do not think I have ever seen one in my entire life, as I haven't lived and traveled in those few places where they are still to be found in small numbers. I know yours is slightly different, but it was lovely to see this picture.
