Hard to rate a cemetery but this deserves a mention for the position, views, care it receives not to mention its inmates, This place holds the long history of St Ives and its wonderful people.

It was April and the blackbirds sang :). The weather was nice but windy and cloudy. There is quite cold by the sea, although there were even 12 degrees celsius.

I was drawn to look at the cemetery as there are often interesting old stones to look at in these places. What I was not expecting was the number of amazing butterflies around the place. It is a little nature reserve - lovely
