Flower Power for Joan
I pass by this statue of Joan of Arc every evening to go back home and last night I saw it was all covered in flowers. Apparently a Catholic organization marched for Joan Sunday and left a few bouquets around the statue to celebrate the day she freed Orleans in 1429. I understand their agenda was more political than really to keep her memory ;-) BTW, as I already mentioned it here, there is a similar statue in Philadelphia in the US that I had the chance to photograph - and post on PDP - in 2007.
