Toad's Barrows

I always heard the tales about Toad's Barrows, but figured they were just some kind of ghost story.  Well, today, deep in the woods on an early morning walk, I think I found them.  At first the markers blended in with the trees and leaves, but then I noticed they were all around me, and spreading off into the distance, deeper into the woods.  I got out of there pretty fast.  And only got this one photo.

You did not follow them? Where is your sense of adventure Rot?

Rot said...

Haha…I just had a baaaaaad feeling

Yea, that may have given me the whillies too. Especially by yourself....I'd like to know the lore about it.

Local Lore: I used my gravemarkers from my 2017 and 2018 displays ; ) And almost fell to my death at one point setting those top ones up. Doesn't look it, but that is a vertical drop and I almost went back-first down onto some stones on the other side of the mound.

I would have died out there. It would have been worth it.

I love how subtly the crosses blend in to the background - really amps up the creepy factor!! I am glad you didn't die!

I know I am late to the party in welcoming you back, but it has been really great to see your new posts. When we saw Candyman this year, the first thought I had as we were leaving the drive in, was how much you would love this movie, and how much I miss your film posts and recaps.

Thanks. Really thankful I didn't end up paralyzed and freezing to death over the course of a full day.

Thanks! It's nice to be back.

And I DID love that film, and plan to do a write up.
