Sacramento has many historic treasures dating back to the California Gold Rush, but in my very humble opinion, it’s the Historic Rose Garden at the Sacramento Historic City Cemetery that has this native girl’s heart.
These photographs were taken on Easter morning. Mister Jack didn’t bring his fancy camera, so I handed my little pocket camera to him when I needed another set of eyes. Don’t ever visit this piece of Heaven on Earth without a camera. Every season, there is something to admire.
The Historic Rose Garden is lovingly tended by volunteers.
The little lambs mark the graves of children.
The oldest marker is made of wood. Weathered away by time, you cannot identify who is buried there.
And if you’re in Sacramento, make this destination one of your top priorities. This garden hosts countless visitors from the all over the globe, and is so rich with Gold Rush history.
