The original plan was to stop at several cemeteries on the way up and back from our 4th of July celebration in Underhill. 

Given the heat and the fact that my allergies are acting up I decided to forgo today’s expedition so I’m posting a few of my favorites from Cote-de-Neiges in Montreal, hope you enjoy.


Yesterday’s visit to Hope Cemetery in Barre was beautiful as always.  This garden cemetery is one of my favorite in Vermont and has my favorite stone in it.  I’ll post some photos later of this cemetery and it’s beautiful monuments.  I was surprised by the number of other people that were there just looking around at the stones.  None are terribly old in this one but the scale and craftmanship is extrodinary.

I think this weekend will be the beginning of visits to cemeteries that I haven’t visited before in the area, then will branch out.

Today’s bonus is Montreal’s Cote-de-Neiges Cemetery.  Another beautiful garden cemetery, although much older than Hope.
