Neighbourhood No.5

Neighbourhood No.5

The ghosts of the Old Burying Ground are out for another winter. The tents cover some of the more fragile headstones, some of which date back to the late 1700’s.

From Lucy Maud Montgomery’s novel Anne of the Island:

The graveyard is very full and very bowery, for it is surrounded and intersected by rows of elms and willows, beneath whose shade the sleepers must lie very dreamlessly, forever crooned to by the winds and leaves over them, and quite undisturbed by the clamor of traffic just beyond.

Quite a perfect description.
