At the entrance to the Cemetery Lodge there is a beautiful display of Michaelmas daisies. These flowers belong to the aster family and aster comes from the Ancient Greek word meaning star, referring to the shape of the flower head.
The Family Tree of Life, created by Carol, Ann, Shelagh and Poppy was on display as part of the Christmas Tree Festival at Ryde Methodist Church between Friday 30 November and Sunday 2 December.
This summer has been perfect weather for slugs and snails, many of which live in the cemetery. Most of them seem to have migrated to the garden of The Lodge and have descimated our vegetable crops!
