Floral Festivals

Spring is on its way, let us celebrate!
New Zealand's festival of flowers is held 11 February - 6 March this year.
Another flower festival, "with a myriad of flowers", is hold annually in Hungarian Debrecen.
Floral beauty and elegance at Festival of the Flowers (Feria de las Flores) in Medellín, Colombia.
The picture is from the famous Silleteros Parade.
Flowers made of flowers!
On April 16th, the The Netherland's nearest upcoming Flower Parade will travel the 40 kilometers
from Noordwijk to Haarlem. This year's theme is music, and if you miss this parade,
 there will be another seven floral festivals this year.

Chiang Rai festival in Thailand is probably the first Floral Festival every year,
as it starts on December 25th and lasts till January 3rd.

Unique shops 1.

The shop American Eagle in New York displays your name and a picture of you taken in the shop if you bought quite many garments. 15 seconds of fame, as they call it :)

Then we have The Gap.

(From the other side of the road, you can see that even parked bicycles nearby are turned upside down.)

"Shopping turned on its head", was the campaign's slogan.

Why not?

These cuties are from Orrefors in Sweden. Looking at them, it feels like Christmas again.

Home made spring

Somebody had put up green leaves of soft neon green fabrics using wire on this sleepy winter tree in the center of Stockholm.
