A part of a graveyard left to go semi-wild gave me this photograph. I couldn't decide whether to go b & w or not, but eventually stayed with colour. For more info go to

Ah, I am happy you stayed with the colour ... the fact that this tombstone once was red makes it different from the others, I think.
Rhododendron at a graveyard is quite the thing done in Hamburg, where there is the Ohlsdorf Cemetery, the "World's Largest Park Cemetery", as they claim it is, and I was there in March, when everything was covered in deep snow, and am planning to go back towards the end of this month when the HUGE amounts of rhodondron will be in bloom (their booklet says, the flowers are out at the end of May/beginning of June). I might come across similar sights then. I'm looking forward to that! :D
