    Poignant. I wonder what that little child is thinking? Does he remember granny, or is he bored witless and just wants to get out of there and back to playing football with his mates???

    No, Sally. They didn't remember their Granny, they never met her. These 2 boys were well behave on the cemetery. If you view it in bigger size, you'll see very little bouquet of Violet, which collected by the big boy for his Granny.

    Our culture doesn't seem to have retained the practice of visiting graves as other countries seem to have continued. Love the way ancestors are honoured.

    Very nice to see granny has visitors and also to see the fresh flowers!

    Is it common for the gravestones to be this large? To me, it looks like you could lift the top stone and look inside. I'm used to grass or some vegetation to be covering the casket area.

    I love the innocence of the little ones, I bet Granny would cherish this.

    looks like they miss granny :-(

    Kate, French still do visiting graves ferquently, especially on La Toussaint (the All Saints Celebration) which on 1st of November. I'll make photo for you where on this day, all the graves will full with Chrisanthemum, the fresh one.

  12. BundaWAH // October 1, 2007 at 9:21 AM  

    Felicia, all the flowers in this photo are artificial one. The only fresh is very little bouquet of Violets.

  13. BundaWAH // October 1, 2007 at 9:25 AM  

    Slinger : this gravestone is normal size. The normal size of gravestone in France are at this size, but many are double even triple size. Its common here to put more then one body at the same gravestone. Many gravestone can be open.

  14. BundaWAH // October 1, 2007 at 9:28 AM  

    Jelvistar : I believe so, since granny have prepared their cloth longggggg time before they exist, even before their parents meet each other.

  15. BundaWAH // October 1, 2007 at 9:30 AM  

    Kuanyin ~~~ thanks. I bet when you see this photo you must say:"oh boy don't sit on the gravestone"

  16. BundaWAH // October 1, 2007 at 9:33 AM  

    Gerald : Hmm I registered, I have to be responsible, don't you think so? LOL. When your friend will come ?

    Keropok man : Yes they did. PS : I always envy to go to the kitchen and make some keropok every time i saw your name hehehe

    belle photo, l'interrogation de deux enfants devant cette tombe

    Granny was well loved. Nice photo.

  22. Neva // October 1, 2007 at 4:42 PM  

    Interesting to see the little ones so solemn.

  23. Denton // October 1, 2007 at 6:43 PM  

    Very nice that the grave sites are so well frequented with flowers and memories left. The children do indeed look well behaved.

    A very special photo for our theme day! For some reason I expected the monuments to be of pink stone, the famous color of Toulouse. I hope to vist Toulouse someday as one branch of our family comes from the areas around there and Lourdes. Some US relatives have visited some of the graveyards near you, but I never saw the photos. Now I have a better idea of what it really looks like!
