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.
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.
I’m assuming every one knows..Bausch and Lomb…. well these are the 2 guys that started it all.
look further into this picture.. see the 3 shadows….. it looks like 3 men digging a grave… not to spook anyone..but there was no one digging any graves while i was there!!!!
well that will do it for now. if you stopped by, thank you in advance. my friend Mary Smyth has gotten me on a roll, of doing cemeteries especially in B&W. next time ill try to have some dates. thanks again for stopping. have a great week end.
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…..
well that concludes my tour, it will be Lilac season here soon enough, and that’s the start of everything summer. we have the largest variety of lilacs in the world,something to do with our temps?! I’m told..
so ill be spending most days in the park soon enough. if you stopped by i hope you enjoyed my virtual garden. have a wonderful rest of the week.
