Autumn in Edinburgh's wooded cemeteries

There are two lovely wooded cemeteries near where we live. They are particularly atmospheric at this time of year. We visited Dalry Cemetery this morning.

Then we went to Gorgie Farm for lunch in their lovely cafe. We wandered round the farm after lunch but were disappointed that the bunnies were all in little cages ready to be transported to an educational event, they work their bunnies hard on the farm!

Then we went to North Merchiston Cemetery.

I've also uploaded some other photos from the day onto the Visit Woods website. You can see my Dalry Cemetery photos here and my North Merchiston Cemetery photos here.

What a lovely place to "rest"

The island of Sam Michele is Venice cemetery, with on it its most famous tomb: Ezra Pound's.
Which is a secluded shadowed flower-bed.

I enjoyed your photographs, a further place in Edimburgh to keep in mind.

See any spooks? Do any trick or treating? (Save the Snickers for me ...)

A beautiful cemetary! Lovely photos. I hope the bunnies have some rest after their hard work. Happy Sunday!
