Last week in the Cemetery started MUCH COOLER but by the end of the week, it was HOT and still WET!
A feral cat has been wandering the cemetery in the morning; practicing its hunting skills on the rabbits. Sadly, the rabbits don’t have much respect for the cat and continue frolicking as rabbits do.
A new layer of mulch beneath the front fence will hopefully make the grass easier to mow and trim. This is a bit of a landscaping experiment. We hope it works.
As part of a grant from the International Museum for the Horse we have been doing bulb and flower plantings by markers associated with African Americans in the Equine Industry. Although the Spring bulbs have bloomed, the summer annuals (planted by Howard Meyer) are in full display as you can see from these examples.
Remember that if you or your group would like to contribute a few hours of service maintaining African Cemetery No. 2, please contact Mark Coyne at email@example.com to plan a visit.
