Wordless Wednesday "Secret Cemetery" with Linky

Came upon this cemetery in the middle of the woods while hiking at Barn Island, Stonington. Some of the headstones date back to the early 1800s. It is miles into the woods behind a large stone wall- seemed like a pretty cool find! Wonder who plants the flowers...

  4. Those flowers are daffodils. They grow from a bulb,and are perennials so they come up every year. Could have even been planted back when the graves were new. Lovely old cemetary! I'd love to come investigate that one, as it's off out of the way!

  7. Very interesting. I love to visit cemeteries. Ok, my dh thinks I'm crazy but I like to walk around reading the headstones and trying to get a feel for the people and what they might have gone through in their lives. Some woman lost many of their children or even died in childbirth themselves. Kinda makes you appreciate the times we live in.

  9. Strange, must be the day to share cemeteries, I have visited several blogs today that have them featured.I cant decide if I like them or not, kinda weird to me, I have a funny feeling and when I have been there, I refuse to walk cross a grave. Love the daffodils that someone took the time to plant!! Have great week!

  20. That's a wonderful find! Once while taking a walk through a residential neighborhood in Louisville, Kentucky, we saw President Zachary Taylor's grave in someone's front yard. Can you imagine buying a house with a dead president in the yard?
