It was a Sydney blogger, Lignum Draco, who introduced me to the angels of Waverley Cemetery. And as an avid collector (photographic) of unusual and interesting headstones it was a place added to the list of “things to do in Sydney”.
And after a superb brunch with another infamous Aussie blogger, the loquacious Margaret Rose, I set off to find me some angels.
I didn’t find the ones LD depicted, but that is probably just as well because my images are nothing like the quality of his, but I did find some that I liked.
It is the final resting place for notable Australian poets Henry Lawson, Henry Kendall and Dorothea Mackellar who penned the immortal ode to Australia with the line:
“I love a sunburnt country”
And I’m loving angels…
