Mt. Hope in March

March 9, 2013

Surprisingly springy weather inspired me to walk the cemetery a little earlier in the season than I normally would. A few notes from Mt Hope, one of America’s premier garden cemeteries.
1) Cobblestone are a bitch–no plowing these streets.
2) If you have to explicitly warn hospital employees NOT to park in this extraordinarily inconvenient and unseemly spot, you seem to have a big parking problem.
3) Poor Henry Ward’s ashes are still stolen, but not that meteorite! Good call on the meteorite, Henry.
4)Delightful names encountered, as always
5) No pictures, but I once again sighted R.O.U.S.s. They’re fun…from a distance.

    Did you visit the graves of my grandmother and great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother in this cemetery? No? Still, I loved the pictures. I’ve only been there once.

      Ardis–if you send me their names, I’d be happy to find them! It’s one of my favorite places.

    ROUS? Hmmm. Makes me think twice about the cementery. I’ve never run across any, thank goodness.

    Really? I always see wood chucks digging around amoung the graves. And often foxes.
