Graves in Compton Cemetery Paid a wonderful visit to the Watts Gallery and Chapel yesterday. I went primarily to see the exhibition about Christina Rossetti as one of her poems has been the catalyst for two series of my recent work. Sadly no photographs allowed and no postcards on sale. There is a very good book but I have to rein myself in as I already have a buckling art & embroidery bookcase. #gravestone#celtic#artsandcrafts#mossygrave#springgreen#burial#littleblueflowers
