In a Danish Graveyard
(Left click on images to see clearly.)Thinking about the Day of The Dead traditions this year reminded me of some pictures I took in Denmark last year. I saw a small rural church while driving eastward from Kalundborg to Roskilde, and I really admired the way the grave sites were designated and maintained there. Rather than having a grassy field with tombstones, the area around the church was partitioned into little plots by evergreen hedges. The individual plots had decorative plants and sometimes a stone marker. It was really quite lovely-----the perfect spot to enjoy a contemplative interval thinking about one's deceased loved ones.
The church was beautiful too.....
