Cypress Grove - Spring Grove Cemetery

Good morning,

This grove of cypress trees is in Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati.
I grew up in Cincinnati and live only five minutes away from this place.  I've never seen cypress trees anywhere in the Cincinnati area except here at Spring Grove. 

The cypress "knees" produce a beautiful ring around the lake that has certainly been here since Civil War times when this section of the cemetery as used for burial of soldiers from that era.

So much beauty so close to home.

Lovely reflections on the lake. The colors of the fading autumn season are great.
