This was taken in the graveyard of Minster Church, Cornwall, autumn 2012.
The gravestone reads:
Mr. John Bond (not James :p) was a loving husband, devoted father and grandfather.
He was also her friend and soul mate.
How touching is that? I love graveyards. I’ve always had, even more so since moving to England. We have one nearby, just by the headland and Little T and I love passing through it. She likes to smell the flowers left on the graves by their loved-ones. I on the other hand have always loved the tranquility, the ambiance in cemeteries, especially the one pictured above. Minster church (and graveyard) has the loveliest setting – it is beside St. Peter’s wood in the Valency valley.
In autumn, as you can see from the photo above, the leaves turn into the most golden of colours. In spring time on the other hand, you’ll find a lovely spray of daffodils and bluebells all around. If you come to North Cornwall and love old chutes and graveyards, you should come and visit and see for yourself.
What about you? Do you love graveyards?
