Not long ago as I was heading into Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsyvlania, I spotted an angel statue in a cemetery not far from the entrance to the gardens. So, of course, I had to stop on my way home after photographing at the garden! There was just one angel statue in the cemetery, and you can imagine my surprise when I realized it was on a fairly recent grave less than 10 years old. Most of the other angel statues I’ve photographed have been 100 or more years old. So I’m not sure why someone decided to have a statue in the style of the older angels placed there, but it was nice to see one that hadn’t been damaged by weather and the passage of time.
Here are a few of my photos of the Angel Statue at Longwood Cemetery in Kennett Square. I particularly liked the details in the angel’s wings so took several photos of them.
