Here's the updated list of those buried there: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gsr&GScid=2271748 Sad to think of those 3 Martin children all dying so young, but those were tough times on children. Fortunately the parents later had two who survived: a boy, Richard, and a girl, Willard.
You can find out more about Hollow Square Cemetery and my involvement under the cemetery name under the PLACES tab above, so I'll try not to repeat here.
I know that a number of bodies including my May grandfather and a number of Parrs once buried in this cemetery have been removed to the Greensboro cemetery. Once I get planted I hope they will leave me alone. Well, since I will just be ashy residue, or at least that is the plan, I guess I'll be safe.
Queen Anne's lace up close. You can understand the lace, but I've never figured out why Queen Anne.
When I got home, I noticed that the day lilies of a more vibrant orange than the yellow ones I showed you last time were blooming.
And for the first time this year the four o'clocks were starting to bloom. Just a few blossoms now, but some there will be hundreds.
While I was out with the camera, I decided to go down the hill to check on the Black-Eyed Susans. So far I don't have as many as I did last year.
And just look! Note that feathery-looking plant at the bottom of the photo. Here's one of those mimosas trying to get started in my wildflower patch! Add to my to-do list.

One last shot of the Queen Anne's lace:
