“Every life is worth loving and remembering always…”

These poignant words are inscribed in stone at the entranceway to the picturesque Glenwood Cemetery. This peaceful site is a final resting place for thousands of early settlers and their descendants who cleared the land and shaped our history. Today their legacy endures in street names, historic homes and buildings, and in small and great deeds that marked lifetimes of endeavours.

Arrangements

Glenwood Cemetery offers a full choice of burial options: traditional in-ground burial, cremation burial, columbaria, private columbarium, and scattering. Professional and sensitive service to families is a priority to our staff.

Our thanks go out to Tammy, who called us yesterday to let us know that one of our Picton hives had swarmed!Colonies swarm when the hive becomes crowded with bees and packed with nectar and pollen. The bees begin to raise new queens, and the original queen leaves in a swarm with about a third of the population. The swarm will land (usually in a tree) not far from their original hive and will hang out while scout bees search the area for a new home. Their bellies are full of honey and they're focussed on protecting their queen (who is somewhere in the middle of the cluster) so they are not a danger to people or pets.If you see a swarm, it's important to call the beekeeper right away so the bees can be collected and rehomed in a new hive. If you don't know whose bees they are, contact the local beekeepers' association or bee rescue, or any other beekeeper in the area. Honey bees are not native to North America – they are livestock just like cows, chickens, or pigs. Left to their own devices, they'll make their home in a cavity such as a hollow tree or inside the wall of a house (causing problems for the homeowner and eventually leading to an expensive removal). Without a beekeeper to care for them, feral bees can also become a source of pests and diseases for other bees in the neighbourhood. And if that doesn't kill them, they'll eventually die of exposure or starvation.We're happy to report that we captured this swarm and installed them today in our Wellington yard. The new queen they left behind in the Picton hive will take over and the cycle of raising new bees and making delicious honey will continue. ... See MoreSee Less
