Historic Cemeteries in my Hometown

while i was able to enter 2 very very old cemeteries. in My little(Erie) canal town. i eventually made into the city to go to our Famous  Historic  Mt.Hope Cemetery. which is still being used today, and sits directly across from the University of Rochester, NY and Strong Memorial Hospital…..the most famous people are…. right there, if your interested. Category:Burials at Mount Hope Cemetery, Rochester

 we have had an extremely great couple of weeks so i took advantage of the great weather and trekked  around town.. the first 2 ,i took my hubby with me, they are old and not really in use, and really hidden..yes im a scary cat.. i watch too much   Criminal minds.
Mt.Hope, is used not only for burials, but many people picnic and jog, and my own daughter learned how to drive there. the landscape is beautiful and hilly. i spent most of my time in the oldest part. so… let me take you on my little journey…in black and white.26561567765maybe_30e42e3954_o

when my English friends came  to visit,they didn’t know who Susan B. Anthony was. and it was then ,i realized i most likely don’t know their famous people either.

so here it is the middle of April, I’ve been in a muck of sorts.. not the best time of year for me.

so ive gone through the archives and dug out some of my favorite flowers,since it will be planting season….in another month. I’m  NO gardener by any stretch of the imagination,but i know what i like, and i love to see pretty gardens,i just dont have the patience  to do it myself.so lets begin the journey…..
