Lovely church and a well kept graveyard...
Bill Phillips: It is indeed Larry. Sadly the church was locked
I like the idea of "pushing up tulips"... Very nice, Bill!
Bill Phillips: Hahaha oh very good E

Patricia seems to be fertilising the tulips nicely.
Bill Phillips: My dad always reckoned the roses grew well at the crematorium
You almost got me there with your thumbnail....A nice scene, William.
Bill Phillips: Thank you kindly Francis

You and your tulips, Bill - they seem to be popping up everywhere!
Bill Phillips: Looks like the same pack of mixed bulbs I bought Lisl

I wonder if the woman who lies at rest in yonder grave was a tulip lover? Well it would help if she was..
Bill Phillips: Who knows? She would be hacked off if she couldn't stand them

I love the grave with all the tulips - a rare sight in England.
Bill Phillips: I must admit I have not seen anything quite like this before Philine
Such a good photograph Bill, but I am puzzled as to why you have not completely ruined it with your twiddling sticks.
Bill Phillips: No twiddle here unless you count three bracketed exposures put through Photomatix pro and lightroom as twiddling sticks
Cette tombe est très joliment décorée.
Bill Phillips: I have not seen tulips like this on a grave before Martine

Lovely place and the little plot of tulips makes a bright statement in the picture. I hope they didn't find their way to mrs Phillips - could be awkward if she looks at your picture today.
Bill Phillips: Funnily enough they look very similar to the ones growing in our garden Louis....
Salwarpe is named after salt, I suspect. Pretty grave you've featured.
Bill Phillips: The Sal part certainly is I would think Mary. The village stands on the River Salwarpe and the Canal. The river is all of 14 miles long....it runs into the river Severn

I might say something strange... is there a Dutchman in that grave.... looks so Dutch.. Don't you love it.
Again one of your wonderful pictures!!
Bill Phillips: It is the grave of a lady who must have been a tulip lover....well I hope she was. I have never seen anything quite like it before. I do love it!

The Carpenter family have done a wonderful display on their relatives grave, and what a lovely little church behind.
Bill Phillips: They have indeed Brian. The church is very nice but sadly was locked
The entire country will be covered in brick, concrete and tarmac by the end of this century!
Bill Phillips: I read that about 2.5% of England. 1% of Wales and about .5% of Scotland is actually built on. Something like 50% of so called urban areas are green spaces like parks. Oh and Urban includes all the roads

Like Elizabeth I thought about "pushing up tulips", too. Its good to see that many of the deceased are remembered with displays of flowers. The term "mighty river Salwarpe" makes me think of the rivers such as the Mississippi; I think there is a slight difference although both are wet.
Bill Phillips: As you will see in a later picture the mighty Salwarpe is not a river to be taken lightly
