Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Pushing Up Daisies

From the grave yard of a little chapel, built in 1673, that’s tucked away, between the forest and the hills; a beautiful place on a beautiful summer evening: pushing up daisies? to be dead, buried beneath the ground.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. Graves make wonderful pictures. those are good ones. I like the crosses
    1673 wow
    i will look how old our local churchyard is and maybe take my camera along
    Im taking pics everday now. your giving me ideas of things to photo.
    is it the done thing to ask th grave occupants before you take the picture???.

  2. That looks very peaceful. I wouldn’t mind pushing up daisies – well, not this week, of course, but When the Time Comes. Much nicer than, say, bull thistles. I’d like to be planted in an older, established neighborhood, too – none of these modern Theme Parks of the Departed. Mind you, we think a cemetery is venerable when it goes back to the 19th century.

  3. I like the upward perspective of the first photo with the light daisies in front of the dark gravestone, and the stunning view of the second. Well done! xx
