It's Sunday, November 2nd....All Souls' Day in France. All week people have been visiting our village cemetery placing flowers on the graves of family. It's been a weekend of remembering and honoring the dead. Lucie and I stopped by the cemetery early this morning on our walk to enjoy its beauty. Flowers *partout!
Chrysanthemums are the flowers of choice, and they on sale everywhere a week or two before All Saints/All Souls'. Huge pots of them for as little as €3,49 which means anyone can afford to decorate a grave. (In the States, these same pots would probably cost you $20-25.)
Some of the graves, though, don't need any flowers are all!
