On a Sunday Drive

After being cooped up for several days with a very bad bug and a trip to the hospital (I'll spare you from the details)  my thoughtful husband suggested a drive in the country.We found a whole community we never knew existed.

I love old barns

Stone drain 

Another lovely barn. I like the soft weeds in front

Barely standing but still working

But the most amazing thing we discovered was a tiny Swedish Cemetery
Twins-a baby boy and girl.sadly there were a lot of children that died early 

A huge tree Swalloing up this tombstone

i wonder if these will be swalloed up too.
Oddly most of the stones indicates how long the person lived rather then showing the date of death.

Another baby Rosa. A rattle and  what looks like a favorite toy was carved on the stone

A very old stone

I hope you get out discover new things

what a wonderful discovery ... I love old barns. They have such a community feel to them. And the old graves are always interesting to hear their stories and wonder about what their lives were like. Thanks for showing us!
