Les fleurs éternelles

Every cemetery I've visited in Paris has these lovely porcelain flower remembrances. Some are wreaths, some crosses, always beautiful. As they are exposed to the elements, their patina gets even richer. Often, as here, tiny moss begins to grow amongst the petals.

I visited in 09 but was still with my husband at the time who was spiraling out of control with addiction and mental illness. While distracted, I was still able to appreciate and enjoy the city. I cannot wait to return and visit with a healthy person or just by myself so that I can embrace it entirely. Thank you for the sweet daily reminders of the city I love so much.
