    Images from a Danish graveyard

    These first pictures are from the area where people have a stone dug into the ground with their name on. The round area is where they put flowers from new graves, that doesnít have enough space for them.





    Then a picture of my friendís daughter, who recently moved in in the building, she lives just around the corner from me.

    Various images of the nature.


    I love this tree! The ground below wil be covered in little blue flowers in a few weeks time.

    A Japaneese cherry tree in blossom





    Magnolia below



    A nice statue



    And then a tree I quite liked the shape of and the flowers on it. I have been looking for one to put on the other side of Johnís gravestone - so far, I have planted some Lavender there.

    Youíre going to laugh when you hear what the gardner said about this tree.... it is paper flowers!! So Iíll keep looking.

    John was the love of my life, and he was a member of PT. He posted as Jonza and his posts are still here. Sadly, he died very suddenly in February 2005.

    This is a pdf of the churchyard, John is in section M, just below the three little red flower icons. I live to the left where it says Park.

    John was Randi's husband! He was a much loved member of PT too, posting as "JONZA". He died 2 years ago (or is it 3, Randi??)

    What a unique graveyard. I love the stone markers and unique animal headstones.. That is just such a cool idea, I wished we had those here..
    I love visiting old graveyards.

  13. I can only see bits of these as I am traveling and my %$# laptop can be very slow. Please keep them to the top of the list so I can see them when I return home. They look so lovely!

    Very nice photography Randi and so serene. Everything is springing to life. It will be nice to go back in a few weeks when everything is in bloom. You are fortunate to live so close by.
