Saturday PHoto: The Beauties of Mount Royal and the Cemetery

The gates to Mount Royal cemetery don't look like this now. About a year and a half ago fissures were found in the mortar holding the big stone blocks--put in place in the 1860s--together. Since then there have been various steps at correcting the problem. At the moment there is a wooden framework under the arch and straps holding the arch elements in place.

I felt a bit like the gates this morning, as I walked for the first time from the house up to the cemetery. Knees acting up, but spirits bright as I saw the loveliness.
