A Vampire's Grave


It was a cold and blustery day. And as the couple walked the cemetery in search of the grave, a light snow began to fall......

This isn't a story-line from a movie or tv show. This is what happened to Hubby & I last weekend when we went in search of a special grave reported to belong to a Vampire! 
As the legend goes, there is a grave in the Lafayette, Colorado cemetery that belongs to a supposed Vampire direct from Transylvania. And the stake that was driven through his heart later grew into a tree.

Here is the headstone......


of Todor Glava who was born in Transylvania and died in December 1918.


And here is the tree which grew from the stake.
