Sacred Heart Cemetery

I have been admiring this beautiful country cemetery since we moved into our house, and finally had the chance to walk through and photograph it.
Now that my youngest is in preschool for the first time, I am having fun with my new-found freedom (even if it is only 2 days a week). So after dropping the little ones off at school,
Mama took a field trip.

It was a beautiful, perfectly foggy morning. It made my visit to the cemetery so amazingly creepy and sent lovely shivers up my spine. With the leaves rustling and the laughter of workers from the nearby farm filtering through the trees, it truly felt eerie.
I glanced over my shoulder more than once.






This cross has been repaired more than once. The seeping glue looks just like blood oozing from the crack.

There is a corn field in the background of this photo with very thick fog rolling over it.

I love the stone fence that surrounds the cemetery, it has inspired me to build one in my garden.
So beautiful and peaceful...it was the perfect early morning visit.

Man O'Man! I want to go there one night!
And for protection against ghosts...I will bring a pizza with pineapple. It'll repulse anyone.

I hope you frame some of those photographs- or sell them! They are really outstanding.
Imagine how perfect that morning would have been if you'd had an Irish coffee in your thermos.

(mister haunted, i LOVE pineapple pizza, btw)
