Springtime is a wonderful time to visit Sunset View Cemetery and Mortuary. Warmer weather, blooming flowers, longer days, and hours of sunshine create a truly memorable experience. Our cemetery offers incomparable views of San Francisco Bay, and our staff members love welcoming families in El Cerrito, Kensington, and Albany to the cemetery. Whether you’re interested in finding a final resting place for a loved one or simply wish to admire our beautiful grounds, we encourage our neighbors to experience Sunset View in the spring.

The Significance of Spring

At the end of winter, plants begin new growth, and animals come out of hibernation. For centuries, cultures across the world have celebrated spring with festivals and ceremonies. Spring is associated with the sowing of crops and the cultivation of life. It’s a great time to clean up your space and prepare for the excitement and activity of the summer season. Spring gives you permission to throw open your windows and start exercising outdoors. It is a time of new beginnings and fresh opportunities, so feel free to use this burst of energy to your advantage.

The Flowers of Sunset View When you visit our cemetery in the spring, you’ll have the chance to admire the beautiful blooms of the Bay Area. The California poppy, the state flower, is a bright orange blossom that blankets springtime lawns. Tulips, roses, daffodils, fuchsias, and dogwood flowers are more gorgeous blooms to see in the spring. Wildflowers are also out in force at this time of year, so prepare to fall for all the vibrant colors of the season. Outside of our cemetery, the San Francisco Botanical Garden is a great place to witness the diverse beauty of the Bay Area landscape.
