Cemetery Fence

I like cemeteries.
I'm drawn to them.
Be it one of the largest sprawling sites in New England or a small one lost on a country road hemmed in with a white picket fence. As you can see by this image, there's still a lot of brown around, but white is fading away. We might get a spring yet. Here's hoping.

  1. I too love cemeteries, especially the older ones, and I'm always in search of cemetery angels. I have photos of the cemetery I mentioned to you yesterday on my blog today.

  2. Keep the faith, baby! Yesterday we had an unbelievable temperature of 70 degrees! We raced to our car, jumped in and took a spin down along the Mississippi River, even tho the landscape is still brown. The weather has been very capricious but right now at 6:30 am it is already 52 degrees. . . there is hope for all of us. The next time you pass that cemetery it's going to be GREEN!!

  7. How white the fence is against the still somewhat drab colors. We are seeing more green here on the ground, changes in this last week (since the last snow, haha!)

  10. I like cemeteries, also. It's fun to note the gravestones and speculate who the people were, what they were like, etc. Nice fence. You do know why they put fences around cemeteries, right? They have to. People are just dying to get in!

  14. I think the quiet country ones have the most appeal to me.

    Sorry about the Bruins... I would have rather saw them get in over Pittsburgh. If the Penguins had been playing anyone but Buffalo, they'd have lost.

  15. After your winter I bet that the green won't waste a minute popping out.

  16. Unusual contrast between the lichen-covered old gravestones and that very new-appearing fence.

  17. I know what you mean. There's that mixture of romance and creepyness that just draws me in.

  18. The white picket fence is so perky compared to what's around it. It works like the River Styx, dividing the living and the dead.

  19. I also love exploring cemeteries. The weirdest moment I ever had was when I found a gravestone in Montreal with my name on it... although quite a few years older than me!
