Flowers in Havana

On the Thursday edition of this blog we are still in Cuba and once again visiting Cemeterio de Cristobal Colón.

There were a few blooming shrubs on the grounds, but not many bouquets such as we often see in graveyards in my part of Canada.

Fuschia flowers soften the hard edges. The chapel in the middle the cemetery can be seen in the background.

It was hard to tell whether a maintenance person had forgotten to pick up this once-impressive arrangement of flowers, or whether it belonged to the stone behind it.

Fading memories

At last, some recent floral tributes.
