Springtime is indeed the time for flowers.
In northeast Spain the small city of Girona celebrates spring’s arrival with the annual flower festival aptly named Temps de Flors.
While both public and private spaces are decorated, the celebration’s centerpiece is the eighty-six steps of the Spanish-Gothic cathedral. Each year is a totally different breathtaking display.
The festival last for nine days, this year from May 12th through the 20th. Apart from the flowers there are exhibitions, art installations and concerts, but make no mistake, the flowers are the stars.
Sometimes the displays are very formal and traditional, but sometimes they are experimental, even avant-garde.
I am completely taken with the idea of a whole town donating it’s public spaces to a riot of flowers each year. I would love to go. Have you been there?
Have a lovely sun-filled day,
Sarah from Design Flourishes
