The stained-glass windows pictured here form part of the South chapel in Ryde Cemetery, shown with a shaft of sunlight brightening the room on a cold January day.


The Robin with it’s distinctive bright red breast, adds to the spectacle of winter and we tend to notice them more in our gardens at this time of year.


Now that the grass has been cut in the conservation area of the cemetery it looks very different, and we can see many things that were previously hidden from view.


There is a chill in the air when the sun goes down and the evenings draw in earlier, reminding us it is the end of summer


The cemetery is a lovely place to walk in Summer, it is peaceful and there are many birds, insects and plants to see.


The fine weather has given an opportunity to enjoy a walk in Ryde Cemetery, and at every turn there is an abundance of spring flowers.


A long lost angel was discovered hidden under the hedge next to the northern wall of Ryde Cemetery.
