Weekly Photo Challenge: Enveloped


I’ve been away all week on a short vacation. As always I choose places where I’m not tempted by t’internet. Sometimes it’s nice to get away from it all but the downside is the massive amount of emails I have to respond to when I get home.

So this weeks challenge is Enveloped. I hope you will agree with me that the photo I’ve submitted fulfils the challenge.

National Memorial Arboretum

Taken in the National Memorial Arboretum, this is one of the walls honouring those who have served, and continue to serve, our nation here in the UK.

Covering 150 acre, with over 50,000 trees planted and more than 300 dedicated memorials serve to make the Arboretum a living tribute acknowledging the personal sacrifices made by the Armed Forces and civil services of the United Kingdom.

But it’s not just for our military. There are memorials dedicated to the Police,  Fire and Rescue as well as Ambulance Services.

Also included are National Charities representing people, including children, who have died in particular circumstances.

    The photo more than does justice to the theme of enveloped. It’s a lovely tribute to honor those that have served the United Kingdom in war, peace time and civil duty. That’s an impressive 150 acres.

    We really didn’t have a lot of time to walk around, Yvonne. It was a hot day and “the grumpy old man” was feeling the heat. Strange that you can take dogs in but they are allowed on all the paths through the arboretum but not near any of the monuments. It’s definately somewhere I’m going to visit but next time “grumpy” stays at home.
