Taking advantage of the sunny weather I went up to the Cemetery yesterday to do a bit of weeding and more investigation, armed with various plot maps.
What are plot maps? See the new page I have added – [Plot Identification]
I eventually found the Thomas Bidwill grave which was completely covered in grass and ivy. The only sign a of grave was a slight ivy-covered mound. Pulling back the ivy revealed Thoma Bidwill’s headstone.
Thomas Bloomfield’s grave was in a different location from where I had originally thought and was more easily identifiable …..
Finally I returned to Leah Lee’s grave for a bit of weeding. Surprisingly there seemd to be hundreds of natural bulbs coming through -yet to flower. In amongst them were snowdrops, crocuses and the geraniums we had planted last summer. Amazing that they had survived the winter; let’s hope that a late frost doesn’t kill them off.
