we must carry it with us or we find it not

More Strolling Around Le Pere Lachaise....



I have taken you to the grave-side of The Little Sparrow
Edith Piaf before  ( here)
This is the far end which is backed onto the previous site I showed you

It was quite emotional with other people bringing little posies of flowers
She has certainly not been forgotten




Other nearby sites
and as you can see it is very hilly

It's warming to see people showing they are still moved by her all these years later. I hope it helps her spirit to feel loved.

Hi Dianne,

Such a lovely post and thanks for sharing.
I was amazed as we visited the Montmatre cemetery early one Sunday morning and there was a man that had brought fresh flowers to put on a grave. I will share my photos soon.
Have a lovely weekend

Hugs
Carolyn

And what of the flowers on the grave of Jim Morrison and the lippy kisses upon Oscar Wilde.

You know how I love this cemetery and agree with you that it is quite photogenic... sometimes the visitors are as well.

I was browsing through various blogs while listening to an Edith Piaf CD on my laptop when I came across your post. This particular CD was recorded when she was quite a bit older and her voice is as amazing as ever! She is definitely worthy of this final resting place. x Sharon

Sharon:- Welcome to my site - how lovely that you were listening to her singing when you found my site.

How nice that she's remembered so fondly. She didn't have the easiest of lives poor thing.

It really is an interesting place to spend a few hours, Aimee and I walked there from Hotel Regina on Rue de Rivoli not realizing quite how far it was, even the taxi driver on the way back was impressed that we'd walked all the way there!!
