The annual blossoming of Daffodil Hill, a collection of over 100,000 bulbs, an ongoing project since the 1940's, is one Lake View Cemetery's most popular attractions.

Cemeteries aren't just for dead people!

 

The Brooklyn Centre Garden Club and Friends are hoping that April Showers hold off on April 20th so that we will enjoy a leisurely stroll through the gardens at Lakeview Cemetery and be able to enjoy our picnic lunch under the trees.
Won't you join us?  Call Sharon at 216-739-1522 or email magicgal [at] sbcglobal [dot] net for more information.

Greenspace in my backyard

Lakeview Cemetery is far from dead, as it is one of the most beautiful green spaces anywhere in the world, full of fascinating art, nature, animals, spirits, mystery and history.

There are some really huge trees down below the dam that must predate white settlement here, and I picture that place in the peace of native American times, surrounded by people who exterminated the natives. It is a fascinating place full of conflicting energy.

I live about 100 yards from the walls, which is like living next to a huge, lush park. The gate is a few blocks away, and I drive through a few times a week just to watch life progress, in great context.... do you have an expert in nature or the cemetery joining you for this stroll?

Here is my favorite, recent Lakeview Cemetery pan...

Also, lakeview was originally to be an arboretium.

That is part of the reason why they have such a wonderful collection of trees (many with labels)

Learned this from Eric, fellow KSU library grad, and stalwart caretaker of the Garfield Monument--Garfield's home in Mentor is a National Historic Site managed by the National Park Service.  Wow, it's a short drive, even a do-able bike ride away.
