Just Gorgeous! I read about your cemetary and it's so inspiring. I wish gardening were more the case around the country.
"My work is loving the world. Here the sunflowers, there the hummingbird — equal seekers of sweetness. Here the clam deep in the speckled sand. Are my boots old? Is my coat torn? Am I no longer young, and still not half-perfect? Let me keep my mind on what matters, which is my work which is mostly standing still and learning to be astonished." — Mary Oliver, from Messenger

Thanks Cheryl. This place was an inspiration to me to volunteer! It dovetailed nicely with my interests and ability to give it the time it needs. Helps "me keep my mind on what matters" as Mary Oliver put it. I tip my hat to you.
