Greetings from Lynchburg!

When I got into town today, I went straight to the Old City Cemetery to check on preparations for my presentation tomorrow morning.  The weather was clear and sunny, and the roses are probably a week ahead of mine at home.  I spent two hours photographing everything I could find.

This evening, I'll show you some of the buildings (and other structures) and vistas ... so you can see how beautiful it is.

This was beside my Jeep as I parked when I arrived.  I think the climber is Dortmund.  (I'll confirm this when I get back there tomorrow morning.)

Climbing Souvenir de la Malmaisson

Tombstones, with the Cato Garden in the background.

The Chapel.

The wall of the Confederate Section, where many of the roses grow.

The trees are huge!

A peek at the mountains, over the tombstones, through the trees.

This is Blossomtime, across from the Chapel.

I'm really excited about my program tomorrow. 

I'll be back on Friday, with Friday Flowers from Lynchburg.

  1. Not sure where you are, but it looks like a place that I would LOVE. You had me at the first picture with the roses climbing on the building. Looking forward to seeing more!

  2. Beautiful!!! I can't wait to see and hear more about your trip to Lynchburg, and I know you'll knock 'em dead with your program!

  3. Love, love, love the Chapel photo!

  4. Beautiful climbing roses! I am wondering what kind of a presentation you are giving.

  5. Wish I could come along on some of your jaunts! Lovely old place.

  6. (P&H and Jeannie, I can't reply to you via email like I usually do because you have that no-reply-blogger thing in your email address field.)

    This is the Old City Cemetery in Lynchburg, Virginia. I am doing a program called "Roses 101" this morning for their garden syposium. I'll be speaking for a couple of hours, and hopefully all who attend will be more confident rose growers when I finish. That's the plan.
