    I suppose I shall start my first blog with a subject near and dear to me



    After meeting Anna Schuleit at the Bloom event for Mass Mental Health Center, John Gray and I asked what will become of the flowers after the event and if we could have some to plant at the unmarked graves near Danvers State Hospital. She gave us a truck load of flowers and let me tell you getting them to the meeting spot in one trip was a daunting task. We had stored the flowers at John Archers house and when i went to load my truck I couldn't see out the rear because of all the crates of flowers. I backed right over a huge boulder at the end of his driveway and got stuck for a while, It was quite the ordeal. Then once everyone got there, no one remembered a shovel to plant the flowers. After a quick trip to home depot the rest is history. to this day the bulbs still bloom in the spring









    The story made the blog of a noted Urban Explorer Ninjalicious of www.infiltration.org

    "Say, Those Tulips Look Familiar
    In an inspired collaboration between art and urban exploration that inexplicably
    perturbed area preservationists, hundreds of tulips left over from the
    Massachusetts Mental Hospital installation made their way quietly to the grounds of
    unmarked graves at the Danvers State Hospital on November 21. The New England
    Urban Exploration Alliance (NEUEA) received the tulips from artist Anna Schuliet
    after her exhibition closed on November 17. The action, dubbed Operation Tip Toe,
    was performed by a dozen NEUEA members in the dead of night as an act of
    memorial to those who lost their lives, as well as their souls, at Danvers. Should the
    bulbs successfully winter over, the tulips (and some daffodils planted by the
    preservation committee) should make their appearance on the grounds this coming
    spring.

    Dude this is awesome. I wish explorers would do more stuff like this. It seems more people are into vandalizing then actually doing something nice for the site. If the patients were still around today I'm sure they would thank you to know someone actually cares.

    That was a really great deed I enjoyed reading about this! I wish more people put time and effort into some of these cemeteries. The people that lived at these hospitals as patients seen there last days here and the stories were often tragic. The least any of us can do is plant flowers or try to help maintain these said sites!

    Well its because you have passion for Danvers I have places like that to. Out where I live I cleaned up some indian cemeteries of course the tribe was not happy about it but they refuse to do it. You do what you have to do bro even the little things matter most!
