When Caroline Walter of Freiburg, Germany died at the age of 16, her sister Selma had a sculptor cast a life size sculpture for the gravestone. Every morning since Caroline's funeral, a fresh flower was found tucked in the crook of the arm, and still is to this day. Nobody knows who leaves it. Every single morning. Except Caroline died in 1867. For 145 years, someone(s) have been leaving flowers.

A picture of a boy named George, forced into a frilly dress. The basket he's holding contains bay leaves, which in the Victorian language of flowers means "I change but in death". His twin sister died and his parents wanted a keepsake of her so this was the nearest they could get. I imagine they found comfort in it, but it seems quite strange to me.
