If you live near a cemetery, go there!


You’ll see stuff like this because people plant beautiful trees and shrubs to keep their loved ones company.  I went yesterday to see that was happening to a rose bush I had planted on my mother’s grave.  Alas, the harsh winter had finished it off.  I planted another one, a white one and since I addedd a judicious amount of fertilizer this time perhaps it will survive.  I was amazed and uplifted by the beautiful flowering trees just at their best.  In some places I could not see the sky for the lovely crab apple, lilac and apple trees in bloom.  Of course the birds were having a field day and the air was cool and fragrant.  I can never understand why people find graveyards off-putting and why they avoid them.  The stones are interesting to read and the surroundings are usually beautiful .  Lots of animals live on Mount Royal where our biggest cemetery is. I sincerely hope the hole below is the home of a ground hog.  I am suppressing my overactive Immagination and sticking with the groundhog theory.  Happy to say this is not my mother’s grave as I would be at a loss to know what to do about it.
