Mourning Blooms is a two volume series. This book is Volume I. Reproduced here are many of my photographs of flowers taken around grave sites. Most often the flowers are artificial, but some are real, but most of these are dried out.
As a new feature, I have added various quotes by famous people on flowers and mourning – the impetus in coming up with the name of this book.
As with my previous books, The Angel of Angel Hill and Light is Life, I strive to share my excitement and love of photography with the reader. This is the third and fourth of several books all which will show my taphophile interest in graveyards, cemetery stones, and other monuments.
