Rosalie Raymond And Friends 1882

I cannot walk past Rosalie without taking a photograph. She is one of five children buried here, all lost to disease.

Her head stone is the most elaborate being a stone baby carriage and a ‘plaster cast’ of Rosalie’s face.

Face casts were popular in the late 1800’s. This one remains since the monument has an overhang of stone to protect it.

Toys are left here, the panda being one that comes and goes at times.

Charleston, South Carolina.

 

Night Heron, Blacked-crowned

One of the Night Herons in a wildlife area that actually ignore us, for a short period of time.

Interesting to me is how green the lore is. The spot in front of their eyes turns green to help attract a mate. Around here large Herons start to pair late November – December. However smaller Herons wait until spring. Yet here he is, green lore.
