Strange mound in yard

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I found the oddest thing in my backyard yesterday.
The city has mostly cleared a small patch of woods behind my house. I noticed something yellow back there, ans when I went back to check it out, I found a mound about 4-5 feet long, and acout 3 feet across, covered with daffodills. This is in a place that used to be in the woods. It looks like a grave. It was obviously placed there, and the daffodills planted on it, because they do not grow wild. It kinda creeped me out, but I am not going to disturb it, and I am not going to let anyone else disaturb it. I think I will just keep it to myself except for telling y'all about it.

That's pretty interesting. Is there anyway you can look in the citys public records to find out if someone was indeed buried there? Maybe someone buried a pet there?

That is indeed a little weird..let us know if you find out anything

I would call the city just to investigate it a bit. Maybe you will see somone coming by to pay respects you could ask them... it kind of sounds like a pet grave if there is no marker.

from the size, it's probably a pet grave, not a human one.

Still is kind of creepy.

I would bring it to the attention of someone...you just never know.

Yes, I think I'd call the authorities and ask them what they thought!

Today seems to be a day of creepiness! First Reeses and now you!

I would be wondering whats in there - hopefully it is just a pet grave but you never know!

A housemate of mine once tried to plant a garden, so he dug two garden beds and planted some things. It looked just like two cemetary plots! It does sound like this is a grave, though, but I kind of doubt it's foul play, not with a bunch of bright yellow daffodils planted on top.

Cheers, from

hmmm that is slightly weird eh? If you don't think that there's a need to say anything, then there probably isn't.

Yeah, I would just let it be too. The city might want to come and dig it up, and it does sound like it's just a pet grave. Someone obviously cared enough to plant the daffodils.

Hmm! That is weird. But I agree it sounds like a pet grave.

I wouldn't notify anybody.We have an orchard off the beaten track, and my husband discovered what looked like a fresh grave on it. The police came out and disinterred a dog. Some poor soul probably didn't have a yard, or used to walk his/her dog up there (our last dog and three cats are also buried there).

That's a tough call. I think I would at least report it to someone - with all the missing persons who knows - it could be somebody who's been missing. And who's to say that some murdering weirdo wouldn't put flowers on a grave. Some of them are just crazy enough to do something like that.

I wonder if they are from a past garden from a house that may had been there before.

Or else the city planted them there last year and that's why they cleared things around it!

Me too Colleen. I'd have to know who/what it was!
