At the highest point of a hill, not too far away from my home, is a small Texas Historical Cemetery.
Some of the family areas are still enclosed with metal fencing.
The family cemetery was first established in the 1830's. For some of you living outside the United States, this is probably not very old.
However, Texas didn't become a state until 1845. This was basically newly chartered territory.
In 1879, the family donated 1.25 acres of land and it became a community cemetery. Burials include veterans of the War for Texas Independence, The Civil War, World War I, World War II, and The Korean War.
The Bluebonnets and other wildflowers are in full bloom this week. And, yes, that is an outdoor toilet in this beautiful scene.
It was a very windy day, as it so often is here on the prairie. Looking at this photo, one might have the feeling of dropping off on the other side of the trees.....and you could.
I'm joining with Jan n' Jer's Friday's Fences. Please take a look at other wonderful Friday Fences.
