Just as entire gardens of the dead for the living can reflect the immense variety of the life experiences of the dead, so too can memorials, headstones, and markers….

Ceramic floral in Saint Remy les Chevreuse Cemetery

A rich site I found while I was searching for ceramic funerary flowers!: Sleeping Gardens and Other Resting Places-http://sleepinggardens.blogspot.com/2011/09/ceramic-flowers.html …and, thus found: Céramiques de France, one of the few producers of these gorgeous memorials. You’ll see them all over the place in French cemeteries.

Care to pause, reflect, and enjoy here?
