Abigail's Bunny

Abigail's Bunny, originally uploaded by 2QTsInHeaven.

My baby girl has her very own graveyard rabbit. He's a cute little guy that we catch sitting on her headstone quite frequently. Sadly, they made us remove the gorgeous guara butterfly plant. I hate having my children in the cemetery. I've grown weary of groundskeepers who don't care and cemetery owners that are merely out to make money. The cemetery where our girls are buried boasts about how they give burial plots for children under two for free. What they don't tell you is that the baby plots are in an area that's rather like the welfare section--no proper weeding; no proper tree maintence. One family put in three lovely willows and the groundskeepers killed all but one. Then in an effort to save the remaining tree, the family installed a memorial stone around it to keep the groundskeepers from chopping the crap out of the tree base. There were some lovely bushes along the wall that near the street, but they chopped all those down leaving the unsightly stumps. Weeds grow there and they never take any of them out like they do in the paid areas. It's sad that we parents come along and try to tidy the place up and make it nice, only to be told not to. Yes, their plots may be free for the babies, but we pay in so many other ways.
