Saignon cemetery.

 Cemeteries are like a history lesson. Saignon has a lovely little one. There are a tremendous amount of losses from the two world wars and Algeria. Older grave of very young children and, sadly, more recently, deaths from motorbike accidents. There are family crypts going back centuries, and a lot of those families still live in the village.
 Many of the graves have plaques and ceramic flowers put there by family members. They don't fade and are quite lovely. We brought some of the flowers back one year to put on my mother-in-law's grave in Jacksonville Beach. Unfortunately it was stolen very quickly.
