Cherry Blossom
 Cherry Blossom   by Janice Freeman  (Digimax S1000)
Westwood Cemetery, Wigan, covered by a carpet of lovely pink cherry blossom. Not a bird in sight!

Comment by Ken R on 31st March 2012 at 00:11
Lovely. I am sure there is a bird in there somwhere.


Comment by Charlie on 31st March 2012 at 00:11
That's not not Westwood, its Wigan cemetery.


Comment by Julie on 31st March 2012 at 01:04

Comment by peterp on 31st March 2012 at 05:43
Cherry blossom looks lovely but the slightest wind or rain and its gone till next year.Make the most of it while its in bloom and enjoy it


Comment by Mick on 31st March 2012 at 07:43
Shame this cherry blossom dosent stay on the trees longer like it does in Japan.


Comment by Helen on 31st March 2012 at 08:17
What a lovely photo Janice....bet the birds were lurking in the tree !


Comment by jed on 31st March 2012 at 08:38
Wonderful photograph Janice You have captured the peace and tranquility of the cemetery also the lovely carpet of cherry blossom.


Comment by maggie on 31st March 2012 at 09:34
This is the real maggie. Thank you so much for this wonderful photo. It sums up the feeling of Spring. Well done!


Comment by Janice on 31st March 2012 at 10:38
Was told it was called Westwood Charlie, but am not a Wiganer so you are probably correct.


Comment by Cyril. on 31st March 2012 at 11:16
Yes a lovely photo Janice, bright and colourful, unlike the last time I was there when it was a damp and dank November day, by the way it is Wigan Cemetery, Westwood Cemetery is on the other side of the old railway line down Westwood Lane.

Why do the council keep on dodging up this ancient and decrepit crematorium that has gone way past its best before date, they could instead have built a new one at Gidlow, which to me is a far more agreeable site for a crematorium.

Beautiful photograph.


Comment by David Barker on 31st March 2012 at 12:25
Very nice shot Janice,vast array of colours,lights,and shadows.


Comment by Syd on 31st March 2012 at 13:10
I have said, in a previous wiganworld critique,"I believe Wigan has a lot more to offer" and
here it is, a beautiful photo and simply Wigan,.....Just fabulous.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 31st March 2012 at 13:10
That's a cracker!

"In England's green and pleasant land"

A truly beautiful picture Janice, I love the effect of light and shade and the lovely shades of green. My late husband,who was born and raised in Toronto, was enthralled by the "green-ness" of England.

Lovely photo. My mum always thinks that the fallen blossom looks like pink snow.


Comment by Henry7 on 1st April 2012 at 11:44
Beautiful photo, really captures the essence of Spring.


Comment by sanibelfred on 3rd April 2012 at 12:31
I think that this is a great photo. I have a piece of paper denoting my ownership of a double grave at the cemetary. The grave is only half full but the space for inscriptions is full. It has been suggested that I write PTO on the gravestone. I would like to see a monument with names for the miners who died in 1871 at Moss Pit.
