Winter Photos from North Merchiston Cemetery

 It was very cold this morning as Crafty Green Boyfriend and I walked around North Merchiston Cemetery. The trees looked beautiful in the low winter sunlight, including this magnificent lime tree 

and this row of trees in the distance

I took quite a lot of photos of the beautiful silver birch tree that I'm 'following', I'll save most of those for a final Tree Following update for 2021, but for now here's a spider's web in the branches of that tree. I didn't expect this photo to come out at all, so I'm very pleased with it

We searched for hibernating ladybirds on some of the gravestones and found this group - if you look carefully you can see a cream spot ladybird, a two spot ladybird and a few pine ladybirds

Great photos, I especially like the cobweb one too. However, the goth in me was hoping to see some gravestone photos as well. Oh well, maybe next time

Hi Unwanted life, you can see photos of gravestones in this and other graveyards on my other blog
