Hydrangeas & Tombstones

I took this photo at St. Paul's Chapel in New York City--very close to Ground Zero. The weathered mossy tombstones in the background are almost as beautiful to me as the fresh purple hydrangeas.

Hey Julie!
I love your photos. It's always a treat to visit your site. I'm headed to New York next week with a group of friends-any sites you would recommend as must see for a first timer-is there tourist traps I should avoid?

This is beautiful. I love cemeteries. We have an Indian graveyard here on our guest ranch that the natives still attend to. We can learn so much from our past and the dates and names on the old stones are our windows. The most resent burial here was in the 1980's.
