Lakeview Cemetery with a Crypt!
I decided to walk a section I had never visited before at Lakeview Cemetery in Burlington, Vermont. As I did so, I discovered a small crypt designed for two people to lie side-by-side. It appeared to be created from Barre granite, which is a light gray granite. Sturdy, solid, permanent and screams “forever”.
Fog Rolling Over Lake Champlain
“The recent cold weather was accompanied by interesting fog over the open water of our lakes. Fog is essentially a ground-hugging cloud, composed of tiny liquid water droplets. This particular fog, called a steam fog, forms when cold air drifts across relatively warm water.

Old Glory Waving Over Military Graves
Once I saw those flags standing straight out due to the strong winds, I knew I had to film. I am always awed by flags standing at attention.

Peonies Passing on By!
“…Often, peonies were planted at the head of graves in cemeteries, assuring there would always be flowers in memory should there be no one left to decorate them. Once planted, peonies were good for a hundred years or more… …Nothing could be easier to grow than a peony. They thrive on neglect once established. TheContinue reading “Peonies Passing on By!”
Children’s Graves Revisited at Lakeview Cemetery

I must sayContinue reading “Children’s Graves Revisited at Lakeview Cemetery”

Fresh Grave in the Cemetery?
The day before I filmed this video, I was at Resurrection Park filming a variety of shorts videos. Whilst there, I saw three men standing in an area with a path that had been cleared of snow. There was a machine behind them. So, I was wondering if they had dug a grave. Watch myContinue reading “Fresh Grave in the Cemetery?”
