The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
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 !
Thanks everyone. Gattina I saw Jim Morrison's grave. I concluded that the graffiti on the Oscar Wilde grave was of a better class!
I love the colors, they are so vibrant and pretty.
