Monday Mourning ~ Horticulture


Famille Iches Arnautas

The canopies that cover and protect the tombs in Cahors Cemetery ~ France, are perhaps a more affordable option than the more expensive brick built mausoleums that they stand side by side with.
Although I have to admit that at first glance, they reminded me of garden greenhouses and this one was no exception. However on closer inspection I noticed the rake and spade and watering can, the fruit and vegetables and abundance of flowers. I wonder if the medal had anything to do with this obvious passion for gardening ?

  2. Such a beautiful resting place. I suppose it's fitting that someone who obviously had a passion for gardening now rests under a canopy that looks like a fancy green house.

    Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment.
