Spring in the Loire Valley...

Yesterday's photo was taken in the pretty town of Bléré which sits on the river Cher. The flowers are in the public gardens 'Republic Square', which was the former cemetery of Bléré which closed in 1840.

All that survives from the original cemetery  is the small Renaissance style 'Chapelle Jehan de Seigne', a memorial, built in 1526 by  in memory of his father, William of Seigne who had been the treasurer of the king's artillery. The gardens also contain the town's war memorial.
