Trees & Shrubs

What a beautiful sight on a March morning. A large bay tree with an abundance of white blossom interspersed between its branches. The delight of Spring in Ryde Cemetery.

The beautiful ornamental cherry trees at the West Street end of Ryde Cemetery are now in full bloom and as the month progresses, gusts of wind will blow the petals like pink snowflakes across the road, the cemetery main carriageway and blanket nearby graves.

Holly is one of the most distinctive of our evergreen shrubs and trees. It is easily identifiable by its waxy, spiky leaves and clusters of scarlet red berries.
