Here you go Colleen, Robert Frost's grave. I love the inscription on his gravestone....Mary, did you doubt that there were more cemetery pictures than just that one? For anyone else reading this that might think this is a little weird let me give you a little background. I was raised on cemeteries, so to speak. We always thought that they were cool. My dad was and is totally into geneology so we had several road trips just to go see family plots at varied and assorted cemeteries around NY. He studied the plots he was interested in and Colleen and I would roam around looking at all the cool, different headstones...reading all the clever sayings and dates. They seemed much more original back in the way back about what they said. We played games and jumped stones...Dad just let us have fun.
So i always thought they were fun, peaceful, beautiful places not scary or creepy...well, except for that one time that i was reading a headstone and started sinking into the dirt where i was standing. That kind of freaked me out. Anyway...now when we are traveling near(VT) or far(Scotland!) i like to walk through and see "who" is there. Although this is the first time i have gone with kids. Avery wanted to know what a cemetery was, i told her that is where they put dead people....she was not so sure she wanted to go. Mitch wanted to know why they put you in the ground when you are dead...Chris tried to explain that it was just your body and your spirit went to heaven but Mitch was confused and wanted to know why it was just your body. What did they do with your head? LOL....that took a little while to work out.
Mary, i thought i would try this barn in B&W to see how it was, and you were right. I love it. I played around with some of the effects on picasa and saved the color on the tree because it was so pretty.
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
