Portobello Old Parish Church

I was visiting the Milton Quilters show today at Portobello Old Parish Church. The show is still on tomorrow as well and I can highly recommend a visit. The quilts are gorgeous and the home baking delicious.

While there I couldn't resist looking around the little graveyard attached to the church and this gravestone caught my attention with it's elaborate carving. There is another stone nearby with exactly the same palm front patterns and without a doubt done by the same hand.

The text on this one reads:
In memory of
Isabella Grigor
wife of
Robert Scott
died Feb. 14th 1880
aged 67.
Blessed are the pure in heart
for they shall see God
also
Robert Scott
born July 3rd 1805
died July 3rd 1885
