Since I have been such a slack

blogger on this blog I am going to post a few pictures of the graveyard of Saint Just of Roseland Church in Cornwall.  BEFORE I put them on the Frog on the Pumpkin blog :)

Not sure if it is haunted, but it has to be one of the most breathtakingly beautiful church yards in Europe.  The Church dates back the the 13th century and was built on the site of an old church on the banks of a small creek.  Because of the climate a 19th century vicar brought in many of the tropical plants that are there today.  As the description on the website says the combination of the waters edge and the wonderful flowers makes this one of the photographed churches in Cornwall.

It is amazing.  If I could take you all there to see it in person I would.  But I cannot, so here are just a few of the pictures of the cemetery - you will see it even looks beautiful in winter.  Can you just imagine the view in the summer?

I will do a lot more on my blog at the end of the week.  I will be sure to stop by and let you know when there are there.

I promise that this is also the frog queen turning over a new leaf (I just had to say that) and I promise to be participate more in this blog - I do so love gardening and really miss chating about it with all of you!
