SPRING HAS FINALLY ARRIVED IN MAINE
Since beginning the project to recover the remnant that is the East Deering/Grand Trunk Cemetery in Portland, Maine, a great deal of effort by local Girl Scout Troops, school children and their families and supportive friends and neighbors has resulted in the beautification of a once desolate and neglected final resting place for the early settlers of the East Deering Village.
From 2011 to the present, on a crisp autumn Sunday, the faithful gather to plant daffodils bulbs hoping, that in the spring, the dormant bulbs would bring forth their marvelous color and vibrancy to the cemetery. Here are some of the early bloomers of Spring 2015:
|Blooms near Thomas Sawyer's stone|
|Note the beer bottle under the bench, a place for reflection. It was removed!|
|Hyacinths and tulips.|
