Brad in the Bluebonnets

Brad Cemetery

The top photograph was taken in January of 2009 and the bottom one in April of 2010. In my first post showing the Mallory Monument I promised to go back to Brad and take a picture of the back of the stone. It did not have any names on it, and I assume it was placed there as a family monument. The other Mallory headstones found nearby are pictured below.

When my husband and I arrived at the cemetery there was a light misty rain falling and he decided to stay in the Suburban. Usually he gets out and helps me find names or stones that I may be searching for, or he just walks along in his own thoughts. Sometimes you'll even see him off in the distance in one of my pictures! That day he took the opportunity to just sleep.

The most delightful surprise was the beautiful wildflowers, particularly the bluebonnets, that covered the graves in this often lonely feeling cemetery.
