A sassy little mockingbird had perfect timing as I was taking this photo in Natchez City Cemetery. This is the Andrew Brown Memorial (1789 – 1871). Andrew was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. He trained as an architect and migrated to Natchez, by way of Pittsburgh, in 1820. In Natchez, he worked as a builder and established his own lumber business.
The Ida Cason Callaway Memorial Chapel is nestled in the forest around Falls Creek Lake in Callaway Gardens near Columbus, Georgia. The 16th century Gothic inspired chapel was designed by Cason Callaway as a tribute to his mother. The stained glass windows depict pines, soft woods and hardwoods, as well as the Southern forest in a progression of seasons. The sounds of the chapel’s custom-built Möller pipe organ ring out around the area. A lovely soundtrack as you walk the area around the chapel and lake nearby.
