Clear the Leaves from the Stone

I took this picture of Riley Rampley's tombstone in the Buckeye Cemetery in Hancock County, Illinois' Walker Township five or so years ago. I really liked the peony bush that was next to it and I thought the bloom looked nice with the stone.

I just realized today that there was something I should have done before I took the picture. The blooms could stay, but I should have moved or done something with the leaves so that they did not block the inscription.

Buckeye Cemetery is on Hancock County Highway 23, west of West Point. Google Maps will pull up the location in this blog post. The small rectangular area is the cemetery. It is on County Highway 23, also known as County Road 350.
