Festival de los Patios - Cordoba




I just can't get over the magnificent displays of flowers absolutely everywhere in Cordoba. Here are shots of two entries in the Patio Festival. I found the private indoor patio overwhelming and claustrophobic - all it lacked was a few gnomes. But the geraniums toppling off the balcony and down to the ground were exuberantly, gloriously wonderful. The bright reds and pinks work so well in Spain under a hot blue sky against white stucco.

I saw many of the patios in Cordoba during the festival last year. I found your site when I was looking online for the dates of this year's festival. Your photos of other places near Cordoba and Granada are also very nice.
