Canterbury Tails

Having been at this blog for almost three years now, it's hard to see something or do something remotely interesting without thinking "that would make a good blog post!" so I guess it's about time that I quit lazing around and wade back into the Blogosphere ... though I may stay in the shallow end of the pool for awhile rather than dive right back into things which means I'm probably going to be posting a lot of pictures.

As I mentioned the other day, I was up in my hometown of Canterbury taking some pictures of the local area on an absolutely beautiful July day; lots of sunshine, blue skies, and no humidity - it was your textbook perfect New England day! One of the places that I stopped at was Dean's Cemetery which is divided into both older and newer sections with the newer section being down a small dirt road behind the older section. As I pulled into the road to turn into the cemetery what should I see in front of me but ...

Now for those of you wondering why someone would have a cow as their gravestone (like Jamie asked me when she first saw the picture!) let me just say that's a real bovine standing right there trying to pass herself off as a statue! Apparently she'd gotten out of whatever field she was supposed to be in and decided to dine on cemetery grass.

These other two ladies looked on with what I think was probably grass envy as they were fenced in behind the cemetery and could only look longingly at the green grass and clover that covered the newer part of Dean's Cemetery that this other cow obviously knew about!

Gotta love spending some time in the country!

  7. Boy, the things you find, huh? Great post though Linda and like you, I find myself wondering what I might find that would make for a good blog topic. But a cow in a cemetery, now that's really cool!

  8. didn't you know the grass is always greener on the other side of the cemetery??

    well, at least she's fertilizing those lovely flowers folks plant on the graves....if you follow me.
