Stone Angel

Angel's face

As a Doctor Who fan, I really ought not to like stone angels as much as I do. My sweetheart loves to visit cemeteries in his quest for tough plants (‘flowers even dead people can grow’). We often see cherubs but the more characterful angels, like this one holding out a lily in remembrance, are rare.

It’s in a quiet Scottish graveyard that we found while exploring the area around Rosslyn Chapel.

I imagine some people might think they are creepy and perhaps I would have found them so at one time. Now I see comfort – patience – sorrow – faith – resignation, all rolled into one expression.

    [ Smiles ] That stone angel is beautiful.

    I am also a fan of Doctor Who.

    Unfortunately, I haven’t seen Jodie Whittaker’s portrayal as the Thirteenth Doctor as yet.

    I wished that Doctor Who was available on Netflix.

    I love graveyards. My nine year old and I were just checking out one Friday. Found what looked like a pile of bones under a bush. Likely would have been so creepy if we didn’t just read Goosebumps Graveyard Ghouls!
