  2. Great shot for Halloween. I wonder how many of those are Civil War graves, they look pretty old.

  3. Thanks Tash and Jim!

    About the cemetery, not sure if there are CW soldiers there or not. I've not noticed any. This cemetery is really close to our house and the oldest graves I have seen are early 1800's but it is so hard to read some of them. Some of the family of the man who built our house is buried there.
    My oldest boy Christian wants me to walk through it tonight with him, ack! I love a ghost story but that might creep me out!

  6. That cemetery looks so, how shall I say it, wild! Very 'nature like', not like those we have around here, very crowded and creepy...

  15. Love this shot of an old cemetery. I like reading the engravings on the stones: Names, date of birth, inscriptions. Old cemeteries make new ones seem impoverished. Thanks for a great picture. & you weather looks warmer down there than up north!
