If I said I had an interesting trip up to the cemetery today - would I sound a bit odd!?!? (Perhaps you shouldn't answer that!)
Took loads of photos - it was so interesting!
It was established in 1846 when there was no room left in the old cemetery in Inverkip Street. It has some marvellous carved tombstones - some are quite ornate.
Some are just plain, but no less touching in the sentiments they convey.
|Mother with baby at breast - how touching and sad!|
There is something about cemetery sculpture which is so moving! Especially the ones where lots of children from the family died in infancy.
|Click to see more detail - it is in memory of "Little Neil" - oh how sad!|
Actually saw a young deer, but didn't get my camera out in time to take photo, unfortunately. Did see lots of squirrels and birds, though.
Hope you don't think this is too morbid!
