A rousing hello and welcome to Mrs. B's Haunted Blog Tour patrons! But not too rousing...we don't want to wake the dead.
For this tour, I thought I'd take a tour myself, so I set out to visit a local cemetery. At this cemetery, the earliest residents of my hometown are interred. The first residents, and oldest residents (at 107 years and 103 years) are here. As well as the first mayor, first police officer and a surprising number of children for such a sparsely populated graveyard.
Although no one has been buried here in more than thirty years, there are still visitors who leave all manner of offerings...
One of several children buried here.
Unfortunately, being the oldest cemetery in the city, and being that it is unused today, the grave sites have fallen into disrepair. There are many monuments and headstones that have tumbled due to weathering and vandalism. For the most part, the damaged stone is always placed back in it's rightful place, even if it is not repairable.
There is a definite energy in this place, and it is one of the sites visited on a haunted tour put on yearly by the local museum - which has it's own ghost named "The Blue Lady."
I hope you enjoyed my little graveyard tour. Please feel free to poke around the blog - it's a rather eclectic place, but it's home!
And speaking of home; turning inward to our hearths for the season and in honour of the blog tour - I have a giveaway. Two wonderful books that will have you settling in to your sanctuary and discovering wonderful ways to use and expand upon that great household energy.
All you have to do to win these two books is be or become a follower of my blog, and leave a comment on this post. This is a one-day giveaway (starting late Friday night as this post goes up.) I will draw a name on Sunday morning (after a suitable sleep-in) and post the name of the winner.
Best wishes, and thanks so much for stopping by!
