Weekly Photo Challenge: It Is Easy Being Green!

Hallstatt Cemetery
Hallstatt Cemetery

Location: Hallstatt, Austria
 
A grave doesn’t have to look plain and drab. It can be
beautiful and green adorned with flowers making it suitable for reflection and as a final resting place.

While in Austria, we spent a couple of days in Hallstatt, a small village in the Salzkammergut region.

After taking the funicular up to the salt mile 2,700 feet above sea level, we hiked back downhill amidst ferns and wildflowers always careful to watch our steps on rain-soaked trails.

Our hike ended in the rocky grounds of the Catholic cemetery where we saw each graveyard plot tended like a small garden. I couldn’t think of a better way to honor a departed loved one.

In Salzburg, a visit to St. Peter’s Cemetery showed the same tender loving care accorded to the graves. It must be an Austrian tradition.
