A Lovely Morning among the Flowers

 Despite biting wind and cold temperatures, a hardy group of cohousing members and friends made the trip to Rochester Cemetery Saturday morning. And found beauty. We wandered through acres of wildflowers and gorgeous huge oaks, peered at crumbling old tombstones, and marveled at the resilience and creativity of nature.

Below, we stood around the flat marker for "Granny.." who lived more than a hundred years ago.

And we walked up and over hills covered with shooting stars, columbine, ferns, solomon's seal, daisies, and scores of less well known flowers identified by the several wildflower experts in the group. Then half the group continued on to Cold Spring Pond, lunch in the cabin, and a tour of prairie and pollinator strips.
