Joining GOOD FENCES hosted by Theresa from,

While traveling to visit family over the Easter Weekend we decided to take the scenic route home. In the town of Linn, Missouri we came across this old Cemetery surrounded by a stone wall.
Seems my attention has been drawn to stone walls a lot lately. I posted one last week as well. I love the work and detail that go into building these walls. They have so much more character than today's iron fences.
If you look at the far end of the top photo you will see a large electric power substation. I know those transformers are necessary to city services and they have to be placed somewhere so choosing a spot near a cemetery may be a good choice. The dead are certainly not going to complain. But I find them ugly and hate the way this one detracts from this lovely old cemetery. To make matters worse, the opposite end of the cemetery is this odd building surrounded by an iron fence. Given all the warning signs on the far side it has to have something to do with the power station but I have never seen one like it before.
It would be nice if they tried to hide both of these eyesores with some trees or another form of landscaping. I think the spirits living here would certainly appreciate it as well.
What do you think?
