Fall Color at Hollywood Cemetery

As I have been working to finish my program about Hollywood Cemetery that I am presenting to the Heritage Rose Foundation conference in Florida in two weeks, I realized that I need a few more photos.  Yesterday was warm and breezy, and it was a perfect day to hit the road in the Mustang and waste some gas while I got this done.

The convertible top was down earlier, but I had put it up by the time I took this photo.

The light at the cemetery, with the high overcast sky, made for some pretty magical light.  The orange and yellow of the leaves in their fall color were almost electric.

Here is a series of photos, taken as I went through the cemetery and presented in the order in which they were taken.  (No editing on these, except to size them down, sharpen them a tad, and add the watermark.)

Sit back and enjoy some fall color in my little slice of Virginia.
















You won't hear from me for the next few days, because this is the weekend of our Greyhounds Rock canine cancer benefit.  Today is set up day, and we hit the ground running tomorrow with seminars, speakers, raffles, auctions, and dogs and their humans as far as the eye can see.

(Now I have to see how to post to the Greyhounds Rock Fredericksburg FB page from my phone or iPad.  I'm sure I'll figure it out ... if I can, I plan to be posting photos all weekend.)


  1. Lovely photos! Reminds me so much of the cemetery i played in growing up in Pennsylvania. Hugs! deb

  2. Beautiful autumn coloured trees on that cemetry, wonderful pictures. Looking forward to the Greyhounds.

  3. Beautiful fall color! Thanks so much for sharing! Have a blessed weekend!

  4. Beautiful fall colors and the photos are amazing. I love how your Mustang fits the color profile! Have a good weekend!

  5. Do you realize you have the car that I've always dreamed of, girl?? {Except mine would be white, of course. lol} The colors down in Virginia look so much like they do up here in MI. We had some big winds last night, so my property is littered with red and golden leaves....that will soon be blown away with my backpack leaf blower because I can't stand to see them "messing up" my yard. lol Hope you all have a fun and successful benefit, Connie! Hugs to all of the sweet furbabies!!!

  6. The color is absolutely stunning... and the Mustang ain't too shabby either!

    Enjoy the weekend and benefit!

  7. Gorgeous seasonal color. You should link this post with us for our seasonal themed Pink Saturday this weekend.

  8. Hi Connie,
    The scenery is gorgeous, but your car rocks! That's the car of my dream! May be one day I will find one too. I would like to contribute to the Greyhounds Rock canine cancer benefit. Would you let me know what I can do?

  9. Wow - gorgeous color. And I love the blanket of orange from the falling leaves.

  10. What lovely photos in such a beautiful setting. We rarely get that depth of color in my part of the country. Just stunning!

    Have a great weekend... look foreword to the pics.

  11. It has been many years since I have been to Hollywood, but the last time I went the fall foliage was at peak. It was a memorable day, and your pictures evoke that. Thanks!

  12. Gorgeous fall foliage -- rivals New England!
    But that car ... is it a 65 or a 66? My first car was a used 1966 Mustang, midnight metallic blue -- oh, so sharp. I LOVED that car, and it was perfect for a 17 year old. :-)

    I'll always be grateful to my Dad for buying it for me, instead of the stodgy practical sedan my Mom wanted him to buy. Dads are the best.

    Have a great time at the Rose shindig!
