Flowers, flowers and more flowers! I was happy, happy, happy!
Festival of the Patios, Cordoba, Spain, 2006
Tantalizing glimpses through wrought iron gates of bountiful patios are all one gets throughout the year until May, when private patios – central open-air ‘rooms’ in houses – are opened to the public.
Originally plants and water features were a way of keeping the patios cool in the hot dry summers but in 1918 Códoba City Hall began sponsoring the patio contests. As you can see the residents go all out.
How would you like a whole wall of flowers?
