For those of you who do not know, Mount Auburn Cemetery is the first garden cemetery in the United States. I lived within walking distance for a number of years during my Boston chapter.
If you plan a visit to Boston, you really should include a walking tour through Mount Auburn which is now a National Historic Landmark, on the register of Historic Places, a part of the National Park Service.
After an April Fool's blizzard that killed many, pretty blooming trees at Mount Auburn in the late 90's, I performed a benefit at the cemetery to help raise funds for repair. How lovely to be remembered by Jennifer Johnson, editor of the Friends' magazine, Sweet Auburn, and asked to contribute my song, lyrics, a watercolor and interview for their 2023 volume, issue number 1.

Visit and tell your friends about this wonderful spot on earth.
