Forest Hills Cemetery, Boston, MA 1/13/13

Forest Hills Cemetery, historic and modern working cemetery, features landscape architecture,  statuary, peaceful setting, and plenty of folks out for Sunday stroll. A number of statues are by Daniel Chester French of Lincoln Memorial fame. Also some contemporary art installations. Over 200 acres – we just scratched the surface as we hunted for a few notable graves, and enjoyed the walk around the central lake. Eugene O’Neill and ee cummings, but missed Lucy Stone, and many more. The clusters of rhododendron bushes and other plants tell us “come back in spring.”
