We were in Chico, my hometown, this week, because of business my husband had nearby.  It was a very brief and bittersweet visit, because I knew I might not have occasion to return, now that we live in Arizona.  My college roommate, Carol drove up from Sacramento to keep me company; I have some fun photos from that visit to share with you tomorrow!

On the way out of town yesterday, we stopped at the cemetery, where the ashes of my mother and three grandparents are located. On my other visits, I didn’t take time to really notice how beautiful the grounds are- or maybe it wasn’t at the same time of year. This time I took time to soak it all in.

Beautiful oaks shade the lawn.


The artificial flowers we put in the vases by their vaults have disappeared. My mother would have disliked them anyway; she was a lady with impeccable taste!

  1. You know I would have loved those trees, something about those Ca. oaks that are so special, love seeing them on the brown or green in spring hillsides along the freeway all curly and majestic. Those vases oh my gosh are wonderful.

    I visited my parents last year and placed fresh flowers in their urn vases. Probably last time I will go. Sad!
