What does ivy symbolize in a graveyard?
IVY: Ivy is a common sight in cemeteries, whether depicted on gravestones or growing there as an actual plant. Because it is an evergreen, ivy leaves symbolize immortality, everlasting love, eternal friendship, and the idea that while a loved one may be gone, they are not forgotten.

What is the April A to Z Blog Challenge?
Each April, people from all over the world participate in the April A to Z blog challenge, and you can too. It’s a lot of fun and it’s a great way to meet other bloggers. To play along, all you do is make a blog post for each letter of the alphabet during April, then use the blog hop linky to visit as many other bloggers as you can.
