my photos

within here is grace and peace ...

Life is like an onion. You peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep - Carl Sandburg.

A saving grace to the demise of the once grand estate of Muntham Court, and the demolition of its stately house in 1961, is the now home of Worthing Crematorium, set in idyllic West Sussex countryside. A peaceful place where my Mum's ashes lie, heaven on earth.



Enter through an iron gate and walk through a sea of scillas into woodland glades, laced with daffodils and primroses.



See yellow blossom and ...



... pink blossom, against a Spring blue sky.



See multicolour bark on trees ...



... and a woodpile.



Listen to the 'drumming' of woodpeckers and the 'chink' of great tits, amongst a canopy of trees.
