Went back to Forest Lawn Cemetery today, overcast and spotty showers. Although my family has a plot here, I've never really looked around untilthese last two visits.

Lots of photos in the next post, the monuments are interesting.

Flags still in place from Memorial Day in the Veterans area:



Monument to Civil War vets:





The geese seem to know their place:



Grave of Native American Red Jacket:





To Volunteer Firemen:



Then as we were about to leave my wife spotted this Heron



He seems to be wounded. He let me get pretty close,



Before leaving

An interesting collection ofmonuments - a president, a civil war hero, and an Italian composer. Nice pictures, and it shows how you can learn a little history just by looking at photos on a bulletin board (I looked up the General and the composer - couldn't figure out what Verdi was doing in Buffalo).

I did the same research and don't know the connection to Verdi either. Buffalo has a large Italian community though. Thanks for looking.

Cool cemetery. One of the neat things about photography is recording the things in your own backyard that no "professional" would ever be likely to photograph. History is fairly thin on the ground here in South Florida, thanks for sharing yours.
