I made a visit yesterday to my recently deceased aunt. I unfortunately missed the funeral, so I made a special trip to pay my respects.
While I wasn’t planning to take many photos, or even blog about this, I saw a number of beautiful angel statues in the graveyard. I call them weeping angels after seeing a recent Doctor Who episode where the angel statues became deadly killers that moved when you weren’t looking and were statues when you were looking at them.

1)Your such a lovely soul –

I have a ten year old who loves The Doctor, but my six year old isn’t so sure.
Ah yeah – 6 IS a bit of a wee one hey! Bless them.
My two are a bit older (16 and 12!!)
The Doc is – well – THE Doctor of course you see!! 😉
It is JUST those Angels yeah…;) They have become QUITE the thing – LOL!!
(I personally quite enjoy the fellow myself 😉 )
Please accept my condolences, Don. She is resting in a very beautiful, angelic place. Thank you for showing them.
Thanks for your kind comments.
Ahem, it’s Danny’s aunt actually, he’s been posting some photos too … I should have announced it really, so sorry my fault !
oops, pardon me as well DC! 🙂
I’m very sorry to hear of your aunt’s death, and hope that time in the cemetery was meaningful and gave you an opportunity to say a personal goodbye. The angels are rather lovely…I’m glad I missed that particular Dr. Who!
Thanks for your comments. Yes, it’s a little spooky, especially as their angels were rather more terrifying – more like vampire angels.
I’m a Whovian as well. Weeping Angels were a great storyline. My condolences on the passing of your Aunt. Thank you for the angel statues.
I only started watching again when my son became a fan. A great improvement from my childhood.
Thanks for your comments.
My daughter showed Dr. Who to me about two years ago. I haven’t tried to watch the older ones.
Sorry about your Aunt, Don. I’m sure she was pleased you visited. My favorite is the kitty one. 😀
Yes, not really an Angel but I rather liked it. Thanks for your comments.
I can’t see if Danny’s replied already, but it’s Danny’s aunt, Danny’s been posting some photos on the blog too 🙂
I finally am figuring out the difference between Don and Dan lol…check your email.
Lovely angels and a good place for them too. Sorry about your aunt.
Thanks for your kind comments
I am sory to hear about your aunt but glad you were able to show your respects.
Thanks for you kind comments.
I love all of them, but then, I love all angels.
Beautiful, I think the 5th one is my favorite
Ha! I love those Dr. Who episodes. Just saw one of the weeping angles ones the other day.
Don’t look, if you look don’t blink :p
Now you’ve seen the photos, they’ll be after you in your dreams…
