Great Coates churchyard yesterday
Queen bees dancing together as one hopes to attract the support needed to establish a new colony.
Tips of fresh growth on churchyard yews.
We continue to investigate First World War stories including that of Herbert Lewis who may have been a victim of shell shock; we have now obtained a copy of the certificate of his death at the Lawn, Lincoln (a mental institution) which gives the cause as ‘general paralysis about fifteen months’ seventeen months after his unit was involved in the hideous attack on the Hohenzollern Redoubt in 1915.
And, inside the church, a sailcloth full of unclean beasts ready to be let down from heaven as family worship for Petertide progresses.
