Freeland Cemetery

A visit to Windsor Ruins in Claiborne County is not complete without a visit to the historic Freeland family cemetery, which lies in the woods not far from the majestic homestead. The ancestors of Tom Freeland, a fellow blogger and lawyer in Oxford, Mississippi, reside here. Visit his wonderful blog at http://nmisscommentor.

It is a beautiful old cemetery, sitting up on an Indian mound surrounded by a brick fence covered in green lichen. The last photo with the moss-covered brick is my favorite, just for the vividness of the green. The builder of Windsor is buried here.

  1. How Peaceful!! And it all feels DAMP, somehow, like the remains of all the snow and rain cling to the leaves brick and nourish the moss. I can feel the humid air and smell the turning of the leaves into earth once again.

    And I WANT that brick!!! I could just get lost in the emerald of those million wisps.
