graveyard

Quiet time

I returned to St Margaret’s Church in Old Catton today to soak up more of the sunshine and walk quietly round the graveyard.

Here are a few of the pictures I took. Click to see larger versions.

I have mixed feelings about the grass being cut. At this time of year the wildlife thrive on the long grasses and wild flowers, but I understand that people want and need access to the graves.

There does seem to be a nice balance at St Margaret’s with large areas allowed to grow, while access is still maintained for the majority of graves.

If you are ever passing, it really is a lovely place to walk and think about all those stories that lie beneath your feet.

Heading back though Catton Park, I spotted a couple of fine examples of wild flowers.
