  1. je sais que cela fait bizarre mais j'aime ces grands cimetières, comme des grands parcs, tu y viens te promener, regarder les ombres, inventer des histoires

    I know that that made odd but I like these large cemeteries, like large parks, you come there to walk, look at the shades, to invent stories

  2. Even though most people don´t like to think about cemitery stuff, I must say that I'm like Olivier.
    Nothing beats these green cemeteries. I can't be quite sure, but they transmit a sensation of relaxation, freedom...

  4. Hi Neva,
    The theme make me think of my dad I posted a flower for him, instead of a stone or graveyard, thats a bit softer:)

    Have a great week:)

  5. I like it. It is really the opposite of the cemetery in Carcassonne where the graves are almost superimposed!

  8. It is always interesting to look at the old graveyards in a town. You can learn a lot about the history of a place.

  10. It looks like it was well worth the trouble to get into ... who knew a little bit of history is hidden in Inverness?

  13. How interesting that it is in your neighborhood! I wonder if a church used to be there. I hope someone has recorded the names -- those types of cememteries are so often lost.

  14. Does the cemetery seem a little with the abandonment?

    There is not too much tomb

  15. I bet no one went to more trouble to get their pictures today, a nice simple, uncluttered place, and very peaceful

  16. What a peaceful looking cemetery--it's a very lovely spot with all the old shade trees and the beautiful grass (ours is mostly brown now!)

    Thanks for your visit to Arlington DP!

  17. This is pretty abandoned...the last grave in here...that I saw....was in 1964...I will post some pictures this week of some of the headstones....there used to be a farm on all this property that my subdivision is now located. Someone mows in here because it is at least mowed...

  26. I am fascinated by cemetaries. So much sadness there, but over time they so many become neglected and fall into disrepair because no one cares any more. Also so much history there. I dis a post on our local cemetary a few months ago
