A couple of days ago, JennyFreckles was posting on her blog, showing old gravestones and talking about epitaphs. I have no idea what I would want on my headstone, but this inscription to Tony Armstrong, a memorial engraved on a bench by the side of the Fernilee Reservoir, is a very succinct summary of what he must have been. The miniature daffodils add a lovely splash of colour.
A little further on and these flowers were just beginning to show on an unidentified tree.
Aren't they gorgeous?!
I love to look at the big picture; see the scale and the grandeur (like looking up at Blencathra or driving over Shap Fell; both of which I have been privileged enough to do this weekend), but there is also much beauty to be found in the detail of life. I often have to be reminded of that!
