May Meadow Flowers At this time of year the cemetery comes alive with meadow flowers and in areas where the flowers are allowed to grow it becomes a feeding ground for flying insects.
There was a heavy frost in the cemetery yesterday morning and although most of it had melted by the time we met up at 10:30 for our weekly Transcribing session Kate found this beautiful ice cross in a shaped flower holder on one of the graves.
This photograph taken in July 2007 shows the fine detail of the brickwork around the chapel windows contrasted against the diffuse sunlight.
Speckled wood butterflies have brown wings with creamy-yellow spots and a small dark eye spot near the tip of the upper wing. The lower wings have a row of dark brown eye spots. The wingspan is about 50mm.
