One of my favorite things about visiting cemeteries in the spring are the flowers – not the cut ones that are brought by family and friends, but the ones that bloom every year in a place that most people associate only with death. Maybe some of them are descendants of flowers planted there years before, but often they seem to be a gift from Mother Nature to those who rest below the ground.

We’ve had a pretty harsh winter here in the midwest, and parts of the country that don’t usually see more than a dusting have been slammed by blizzards. It is weather like this that makes you wish for warmer weather. Today I’ve decided to go back through my photos and find some shots that display Cleveland spring and summer in full bloom, in hopes of finding a little bit of warmth within them.

Hopefully I won’t be pelted with refuse for this, but I enjoy watching the cycle of seasons in the cemetery. In Cleveland, we know that winter and snow (and ice) are just around the corner.

But eventually winter will give way to spring, and the plants and flowers in the cemetery will bloom again.

Spring leads to summer. The day I took these pictures, the cemetery was so hot and sticky that I was afraid the camera lens would fog.

And then summer will inevitably turn into autumn, with all its attendant colors.
