I have to admit, I never thought I would be into botany in any serious way but David Hewitt can turn you around on that issue. He knows Frankford and likes to walk around our open spaces to see what lies ahead. I took two tours with him through the cemeteries and he has a way of showing you things you have been seeing but never really seen. Well worth a trip to the HSF this month.
