This grave site above really got to me. It radiates so many emotions..... sadness, serenity, overwhelming pain, and most of all love. I had not known until yesterday that fencing around a grave site like this generally is for a child, sorta' like a 'crib'. This area may have been a children's grave yard, as there were many 'cribs'.
It held two children, toddlers. We found many who had died in the 1910's, perhaps a plague type illness? Several family's lost several children.
Some graves are so old that there no longer is any identification left.
This one brought a smile....
This one caught my eye because the headstone, a small piece of rounded wood was so tiny. I spotted a little leprechaun magic up close on this one. Enlarge it and you will see what I mean.
I did not mean any morbidness in this post but to share the simple beauty in death and peace. A celebration of lives, however, short they may be.
