Greenwood Cemetery in Ocala

Cemeteries are just so much better with palm trees, aren't they?

There's a grand triumvirate of conjoined cemeteries in Ocala - Greenwood Cemetery, Woodlawn Cemetery, and Highlands Memorial Park - but I tend to arbitrarily refer to the whole thing as simply Greenwood Cemetery. I stopped in for a quick stroll around the grounds today and checked up on some old friends.

One of my graveyard pet peeves is management setting ridiculous rules about what you can and cannot do with your own damn burial plot. Even in death, it seems, one can't escape landlords and neighbors complaining that your property's too tacky. Fortunately, this place is one of the good ones - it lets families be free to decorate graves with as many toys, statues, pictures and bric-and-brac as they like.
