The Season of Mellow Fruitfulness

Autumn in the Cemetery
Autumn in the Cemetery

What a lovely long summer we have had but we can not deny that the autumn season is now upon us.

The cemetery is full of fruit, what an abundance of berries there are to be seen on the holly, bay, yew and ivy branches and the rose and bramble bushes are still displaying their scarlet hips and ripe blackberries. The huge cedar tree is also carrying an amazing quantity of fresh new cones this year.
