Family Plot

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 6 April 2016 in Landscape & Rural.

I stopped to take a picture of the windmill. When I got home and downloaded the picture, I noticed the small family cemetery. It just looks so strange beside the large building.

Magnifique ton moulin à vent. Un superbe ensemble et joli point de vue.
En France aussi il existe des petits cimetières de famille, c'était les protestants . Il reste quelques tombes ancienne, mais maintenant c'est interdit. )

Très étonnant effectivement ce petit cimetière près de cette exploitation familiale. En Suisse, ce serait interdit.
Très belle journée.

@maximage: Ce fut dans une zone où il y avait un grand nombre de petites exploitations et puis cette très grande ferme. Je sens le cimetière était là depuis de nombreuses années auparavant et la grande ferme grandi autour d'elle.

Doesn't it just and a beautiful landscape somewhat marred by that huge shed. They could at least have painted it green :)

An unusual picture in a political area that is very liberal. I like the windmill's paint job.

It does look strange, doesn't it? I like the scene though - especially the tinge of red in the hillsides, likely from maples budding out :-)

An interesting find, indeed!! Especially out in the open and not near any trees or landscaping. Maybe it's to ward off any potential buyers looking to develop the land?

6 Apr 2016 6:13pm

@Steven: This was an area with a lot of small farms and then there was this place with huge buildings. I think that there possibly a small farm there at one time. The big buildings totally changed the landscape.

You have composed this beautifully. I would not have known that was a cemetery.

I wonder if there was once a little country church there. Nice one

beautiful view, elaine!

yes, the cemetery is strange to see.
is it allowed in your country to bury your loved ones in your own garden?

6 Apr 2016 9:12pm

@curieuzeneuzemosterdpot: Probably 200 years ago but not now. This area has a lot of small farms and then there was this very big one. The cemetery was probably from years ago.

Dommage que la barrière autour des tombes ne soit pas très belle.
