All-Souls Day

Today is All-Souls Day in France, and it's the official day to remember loved ones who have died. All the flowers are in place at the village cemetery, beautifully expressing the loving remembrances of family. The journey to this day began last week as we drove this road into Cajarc....

The Saturday afternoon market began to buzz around 3pm. All the village flower shops were overflowing with blooms. Flower vendors in the square were doing a brisk business.....
Potted flowers like these fill every little village cemetery throughout France. Flowers are big business this time of year!
