Hello Fai - Autumn... A season I enjoy as much as the others... When combined with a visit to a place such as this, the sense of stillness is even more apparent... A difficult thing to capture but when I read comments such as yours, well, perhaps there has been some success! Thank you!

Cheers

The first thing I saw when blowing this one up, was my name! :)
The lush green grass and brilliantly colored trees make this more of a splendid Autumn capture than just a typical graveyard scene. It is quite beautiful! I think I could enjoy that nap you were referring to right over there on that charming little wooden bench! No doubt, these old bones have a perfect place to rest. Another lovely shot presented just beautifully. Thank you so much for sharing. Warmest regards from Georgia, Mary Alice

Hello Kalin - I see you have had a good ol' rummage through the gallery! I am so pleased you have enjoyed your visit to the extent you have...

I hope to 'see' you again soon!

Hello Mary Alice - Well, I do have a small confession to make. I saw this headstone.. and the name and thought...

I hasten to add, I never thought the correspondence I have from a certain Mary Alice was being undertaken (groan) from beyond the grave but I thought you might, should you happen across this, enjoy the gentle leg-pulling!

Light-heartedness aside, this is a lovely place.. It is truly ancient.. with such a stillness. Your comment about having a nap shows perceptiveness.. In the spring and summer, it so not unusual to see folk grabbing 40 winks in the sunshine.

There is even history here that links the US to the town of Bury St. Edmunds.. Bartholomew Gosnold in the 1600's travelled to the east coast of the US. He lost his daughter in her very early years... her name was Martha.. as in Martha's Vineyard.. She is buried here in this graveyard.

It is a small world..

I am chuffed to bits you liked this...

Cheers
