Haunting Beauty...

An old graveyard seems like a good place
to spend Halloween....

Unless you are afraid?

(click photos to enlarge)

A good place to to be at dusk
when the world of the living
and the world of the dead
are only divided by
a thin line...


energy swirls in the air...


Try to move quickly 
we don't want to get lost in the 
maze of pickets...


This marker is that of a young bride,
who met a tragic end on
her wedding day ;-)

We should tread quietly
for awhile...




Funny and a little eerie
that so much moss grows in a sunny location...


Happy All Hallows Eve to you!
Stay Safe!!

A bit of trivia...
This old and truly very lovely graveyard is in
Roslyn, Washington.
Roslyn is the town that the TV series
Northern Exposure was filmed..

A strange and non eerie thing about the cemetery is
that deer are always wandering about!!


 Who knows what they see after dark!!!

I am joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays
Pop on over for a visit!

 Happy Haunting...

Hi Bella,
I did a cemetery post too. I love cemeteries, they are a place of peace for me and always have been for my family. Your photos are lovely and really captures the feel of an old graveyard.
Happy All Saints Day/Happy Halloween!

Bella,
There is some beautiful archetecture in those old graveyards. The deer is awesome.

Oh that is beautiful. I grew up next to a very old graveyard on top of a mountain in PA. I used to love to go there and read all the tombstones. What I thought was funny was that my aunt was the "graveyard tender" even though she was not of that faith. When she died they "bent the rules" a bit so that she could be buried there.

Your graveyard is spectacular and I would love to walk it myself. I like the idea of the deer being there-the living among the dead. Hugs- Diana
