Nashville - Nashville Cemetery

 

Location:  York Region, Vaughan   N 43 50.080   W 079 39.705  
Located in the cemetery on the east side of Huntington Road, south of the village of Nashville.

Dedicated to the men of this area who gave their lives in the Great War.  The engravings are very worn, not sure when this memorial was erected, likely soon after the war.

  1. You can of course always decorate your home with flowers that don't grow, or wilt either. These were painted by master painters of the past, in Western art history. I found a "garden" full of these flowers at wahooart.com, a company that makes excellent canvas prints, and even hand-painted replicas in oil paint on canvas, from digital images in their large archive for you to choose from.
    I ordered this one online from wahooart.com, http://en.wahooart.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LJ5JY , called Flowers by Jan Brueghel the Elder, a Flemish painter of the 16th century, as a present for my dear sister for her birthday, that she now has proudly hanging in her living room. She loves tulips and actually has those growing in the garden now, not far from the framed canvas print.
    She said the print adds "timelessness" to the atmosphere of her living space. That's true, because that beautiful vase of flowers has now stood for 600 years.
