We recently had an holiday in Austria and could not help be struck, as on previous visits, with the beautiful churchyards. Instead of sombre tombstones, the custom is for wrought iron monuments, surrounded by flowers and small red lantern lights. The way they were tended was impressive and moving.
These photographs are typical -
taken in the churchyard at Strobl on the banks of Wolfgangsee, near Salzburg.
Tombstone Tuesday is a blogging prompt from http://www.geneabloggers.com/ to inspire bloggers to record their family history and personal memories.
