Garden on the mountainPosted: May 26, 2014
Apparently there are over 100 tree species at the Mount Royal Cemetery, and if I had taken the time to pick up a map at their office I would be able to tell you what the name of this white flowering tree is. But the cemetery takes up 165 acres on the slopes of the mountain, and that would have been quite a hike with my painting gear. As with many other areas of Montreal, I continue to discover treasures in my city by seeking out sketching spots, and this place certainly is a treasure, especially in the spring when it is all abloom. If you have any idea what this tree might be, I would love to hear. If not, I guess I’ll make the hike to get the tree map at the cemetery office.
