Spring in Old St Andrew's Churchyard

I often walk through Old St Andrew's Churchyard, Kingsbury, on one of my government authorised exercise routes.  I experience a  heightened awareness that nature is carrying on in its bustling way in blissful ignorance of the crisis hitting human beings. Kingsbury has been here before when the Black Death wiped out the original settlement - nature carried on then, too. 

A time to reflect.

These pictures were taken on a sunny afternoon recently when the trees were full of birdsong and the daily coronavirus death toll in hospital was nearing a thousand.

Forget-me-nots. What a beautiful way for nature to commemorate lost loved ones!

Thank you for these lovely photos, Martin.
