A modern willow

Normally I photograph older gravestones, often from the mid-19th century. Willow carvings, with and without urns, were hugely popular during that time. Then last week I stumbled upon a modern gravestone with a modern willow.

Being partial to willow carvings, I love it!

What is perhaps most interesting about this monument is that apparently both Robert and Barbara are still living.

  1. I'm not a great lover of most modern tombstones, I think they lack character, but this one I like. It does seem a little strange to have it ready and waiting, I wonder if the owners visit it before they permanently take up residence there ?
