we took an afternoon bus trip into the Provencal countryside to Fayence and Seilans and I was excited to see, as soon as we left the car park, a cemetery! it was almost hidden behind a wall and boxwood hedge, but I was glad I took the time to wander in (very quickly, I might add - one does not want to be the one holding up the tour bus)
Julie mentioned last week, in a comment, about flowers at grave sites and one thing I really like about the Australian ones I have seen are the gardens around so many graves. Although there are a few tiny gardens in Ontario, mostly it is an abundance of fake flowers that are left to rot in the sun.
Here, in this particular part of France, I found something very different - an abundance of glazed pottery flowers!
...and several potted flowers mixed in.
I have tried, and failed, to find any information about this. I don't know how unique it is, but if anyone else has seen this sort of thing, please share.
