Mount Auburn Flowers

On our recent trip to Boston, we visited Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I'd seen a New Hampshire Public TV program, Windows To the Wild.  Windows to the Wild is a wonderful local show for those interested in the New England landscape. The host of the show,Willem Lange, toured Mount Auburn Cemetery. Between beautiful vistas, gardens, sculpture, and graves of prominent New Englanders like Mary Baker Eddy, Isabella Stewart Gardner, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Winslow Homer, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, B.F. Skinner and others, I was impressed. I wanted to see it for myself. 
 
 The Rhododendrons and Azaleas were in full bloom-perhaps a little past peak, but still gorgeous.
 We only had time to see just one section of Mount Auburn. We walked through ancient family plots, up and over hills, along woodland trails...
and around ponds. Mount Auburn has several ponds.
We saw chipmunks, rabbits and birds. The hostess at the visitor center told us we might see baby raccoons and owlets if we were lucky.
Someday we'll go back when we have time to see the rest of the property-all 175 acres! To see some of the vistas and sculpture at Mount Auburn, please visit my family blog, Pine Cones and Periwinkles.
