They use bright colours, it's unusual.

We would use mourning colours like black and white.

Reminds me when I was there, even twice. Very special cemetary ! Have you seen Jim Morrison's grave ? Now it's protected 20 years ago there were junkies sitting all around and the grave was full with spoons, seringhes etc. Just terrible !

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone. Gattina I saw Jim Morrison's grave. I concluded that the graffiti on the Oscar Wilde grave was of a better class!

Daisy said...

I love the colors, they are so vibrant and pretty.

Eaton Bennett said...
