The Otranto Flower Festival

The Otranto Flower Festival was on when I arrived. It was such a beautiful time, flowers everywhere, even on the stone tiles on the floor.

Around the side of the old city wall where I live, there was a gazebo that was quite stunning. I looked closer and it was made up of recycled water/pop bottles, and a simple gazebo construction. This was art! What I also liked was that you could see how much water was in the bottles to see if the plant needed watering…. something I am always challenged at. Usually my plants die. But this … this I could probably do…
