    Miss Alicia is one adorable bat.

    I also adored the link about gardening on top of a stranger’s grave. I’d totally do that if it was a thing where I live. What a nice way to honour the dead and make use of land that can’t respectfully be used in any other way.

    And FYI – your link to Dark Stock Photos appears to be broken.

    One of my workmates started that Dark Stock Photos feed – it’s mad how it’s taken off.

    When I read the Atlas Obscura article, I immediately contacted my local favorite cemetery to share this with the message, “We need to copy this!”
