It must be the start of spring.

Everything in the garden is showing signs of spring there are new shoots on most of the shrubs now.
We have three Camellia bushes in quite a protected area against the garage wall and they are covered in buds and flowers.

An hour to spare.

Today I was in Taunton with an hour to kill while I waited for my Wife Sue who was visiting her brother Steve in the St Margret's Hospice.
Just down the road is a cemetery's with a lot of trees that due to the size of them I would think were very old.It was very easy to spend an hour there as there was so much to look at.
Cemetery's fascinate me as there is so much history and they are always peaceful.
I took some interesting pics and here are a few I would like to share with you.

These first pics are of Cedar of Lebanon trees over 100 feet high.


 

















This is a Willow that was blown over and is being cut up.It was the only Willow in the Cemetery.



Some distant Yew trees.
A quiet corner
A first world war Monument.

This is a plastic flower that had blown away from a child's grave.

I have placed the flower back in with the others.

 New life Snowdrops peeping through next to the child's grave almost like saying welcome you will be OK here.
Young men from the first world war I think they said that was to be the war to end all wars.You would not think so with the state the world is in today.


This is a beautiful Cherry tree.
A row of Atlas Cedar's I think.
A place to sit and think.
Yew.




A beautiful Silver Birch.




Here we have a very large Holm or Evergreen Oak
