It's been a hot, hot week here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, with temperatures hovering near 100. We had refreshing and much-needed rain last evening, and I'm hoping it may be a bit cooler today.
This week for Friday Pretties, I thought I would show you a few pretty things I've seen in my recent travels. Thank you to Joyce from http://iloveprettylittlethings.blogspot.com/ for hosting this special event each week. When you have a moment, visit her blog and feast upon her own Pretties ... and then follow the links to our other friends.

"A Peaceful Oasis in the heart of Brooklyn, New York" .... that is the subtitle on the website for the Green-Wood Cemetery. Founded in 1838 as one of America’s first rural cemeteries, the Green-Wood Cemetery soon developed an international reputation for its magnificent beauty and became the fashionable place to be buried. By 1860, Green-Wood was attracting 500,000 visitors a year, rivaling Niagara Falls as the country’s greatest tourist attraction. Crowds flocked to Green-Wood to enjoy family outings, carriage rides and sculpture viewing in the finest of first generation American landscapes. Green-Wood’s popularity helped inspire the creation of public parks, including New York City’s Central and Prospect Parks.
