The day I left
we had one last adventure! Sarah and I
which is right across the street from her house. I can’t say I have ever explored a cemetery
before, but this one is HUGE and is set up with many paths, gardens, and water fountains within a cemetery. It was a gorgeous, hot and sunny day in May
and all the trees were coming out in bloom.
(This shot is currently my desktop background on my computer…isn't it pretty?) Mount Pleasant Cemetery
We did manage to find the plot of Glenn Gould (Canadian pianist). This was the highlight since we are both musicians! I liked how his gravestone was in the shape of a piano.
Here are Sir Frederick Banting and Dr. Charles Best, the discoverers of insulin (their names are always said together, so I was half expecting them to be buried beside each other…disappointingly they weren't).
William Lyon Mackenzie King,
10th and longest serving Prime Minister! Canada
It really is a lovely location, even if the normal circumstances for visiting are rather somber.
I’ll be back in the next few days with my tutorial on how to make a fake, no maintenance terrarium and some more house updates!
