We spent most of the day yesterday at cemeteries. We visited six yesterday and three the day before. We took along a bucket and a butcher kife, many of the grave markers needed a good edging.
This marker was rescued. I remember one time when I was little and this grave was near the fence (the fence has been moved back now) and the grave marker was not visible so my Dad hunted for it and cleared it off. This is my Dad’s brother who died when he was six months old. Some of these old stones should be raised up.
After wandering around a while we finally found Far Guy’s Great Grandparents on his fathers side of the family.
The Fern-leaf Peony is almost past bloom in the cemetery just down the road.
The blooms are smaller than a regular Peony.
