A Favorite Thing- The Pitcher in the Cemetary



Very near my house is a wonderful cemetery I walk in frequently, always with my camera of course.  There is always something new to see, not only because it is 45 acres but also it changes with the seasons.  It has wonderful old trees as well as gravestones dating back to the late 1700's.  I spied this rusty enamel pitcher recently and wondered why I hadn't seen it before.  I was tempted to take it home but I left it there.  I will try to take a photo in each of the 4 seasons.  That would be interesting in a grouping on a wall.


Today I have linked up with Mockingbird Hill Cottage for A Favorite Thing.

and Wordless Wednesday

    1. Me too! Usually you see tacky plastic containers in the cemetery.

  2. It's so neat looking. I wonder if someone left flowers in it at some point - to put at a gravesite?

    Thanks so much for joining in this week! It's lovely to 'meet' you.

    1. That is what I was thinking but did they mean to return for it? it seems to nice a container to leave. Or maybe I am just like pitchers. :)

  3. How nice that you left the pitcher where you found it. You have to wonder how many years it's been there and who left it. It is a fabulous old piece!

  5. Interesting. Makes you wonder though, doesn't it.

    We have a cemetery at the end of our mile and 1/2 long road...I have a dearly beloved buried there. I don't go down much...but when I do, I like to walk around and see the sights. It is interesting to see what people leave at graveside.
    It is more disturbing to see what vandals disrupt of destroy. Sad.

    your photo is pretty, and would make a pretty collection through the seasons. Pat

    1. In the same cemetery is a child's grave with some of his toys: firetrucks and such. It's sad to walk by it.

  6. I like cemeteries but we don't have any with gravestones back to the 18th century. But it's still interesting to see who is "resting" there. I love the peace and quite in cemeteries.

    1. I wonder if the practice of cremation and "green burials" will make cemeteries obsolete at some point in the future.

  7. I love old cemeteries!! So much history of so many people. What a neat find!! Was it stuck out in the middle or was it next to a stone? I believe the pitcher is begging for flowers!!

    1. It was in front of a stone but not right next to it. If it had had flowers in it I would have never seen it's uniqueness!

    1. It is not an app, it is just part of Blogger. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

  9. Really interesting - looks like it has been there for a long time. I wonder if it will still be there next time.

    1. Me too but I also wonder if I will remember where I found it!

  10. What a remarkable find, Karen. I love that there are so many 'possibilities' in trying to figure out its history and how and why (and when!) it got there. Cemeteries are such haunting places full of discovery.

  11. This is quite interesting. I think it's nice when you notice something new at a familiar place for the first time. You should will get some neat shots using the pitcher as the subject, I believe. Thanks for visiting and linking up!
