Today I am taking you way beyond my home town
to the city of Salzburg in Austria
These photos were taken in the St Peters Abbey Cemetery
where most of the wealthy & aristocratic families of Salzburg are buried
it is also the site where the Von Trapp Family
hid in the movie " The Sound of Music"
I loved meandering around this wonderful place
with it's sense of history and the sound of
violins drifting across the air
Beautiful baroque style graves are tendered and decorated
with candles, ornate lanterns, fir branches and flowers
predominately pansies - because they derive their name
from the French word pensée which means thought.
This is my contribution to
"Our World Tuesday"
Take a visit to see what others have uncovered
in their corner of the world
