Lake View Cemetery and Conservatory


7/12/21 Lake View Cemetery
Other than when I was there for a burial service last year right before the pandemic began, I hadn’t been to sketch at Lake View Cemetery since 2013. While adjacent Volunteer Park has some of the city’s oldest trees, the ones growing at Lake View tend to be more average sized, and some are decoratively pruned, like the flat-top shrub at the left edge of my sketch. I guess it makes it easier for visitors to find graves when they can look for distinctive plants nearby. The building in the distance is the back side of the park’s Conservatory framed by an interesting variety of soft foliage and hard stones.
