Trompe l'oeil in the Cemetery

We often wander through our local cemetery on the way back from the park, it has like a lot of Christchurch taken quiet a beating from all the earthquakes, but even so it retains a very beautiful serene atmosphere. We recently discovered a lovely lady name Anne painting a Trompe l'oeil (aka trick of the eye) and stopped for a chat.......now we are inclined to pop past regularly to check her progress and take photographs.
Such a big undertaking!

And of course  lets not forget the headstones, crosses, cast iron details and inscriptions....but for now here are a few of my favorite crosses....



And we better finish up with a splash of colour....

Pretty!!

What a cool project! Maybe we can go past and have a look when we take our walk this week. PS Weather's looking kind of crappy tomorrow so maybe Wednesday?
