Fern Fever

I stumbled upon an abandoned cemetery in Vezelay the other day.

At the far left of the site this tomb caught my eye;

It was surmounted by a structure whose original purpose, I imagine, was to contain relics of some sort, it still has its lock.

The glass is broken and ferns have taken over, they give the impression that they are breaking out of a Wardian case. It would be nice to think that the entombed was a pteridomaniac.
