Give me a patio with flowers.....

Our poor Andalusia is shivering under the rain and cold winds. It is hard to remember what the warm summer days were like. They seem so far away ! This year, Monchéri and I made the promise to go to Cordoba in may to see the famous patios in their full glory. Every year, during the month of may, the city organizes a patio competition and gives an award to the patio which shows the best flower arrangement, best color scheme and aesthetics. So you can stroll through the city and enter private houses which take part to the contest and enjoy the colorful views.

Have a great colorful week end !

Alas, it is still cold here! But I think I felt Spring peeked furtively ;-)

I want those flowers in my place to remind me of beautiful days to look forward to...
