Flower Bouquets at Flower Stall, La Rambla, Barcelona

Flower Bouquets at Flower Stall in La Rambla, Barcelona [enlarge]

These colorful flower bouquets I found at one of the flower stalls along La Rambla. It was a holiday in Barcelona as today it was the day of Catalonia, that is, La Diada that happens to coincide with the anniversary of the terrible events of the twin towers on September 11th or what we all know as 9/11. I went to see if I captured some new images of street artists so abundant in the area and I managed to take some pictures in the end. I will show you in coming posts since on second thought I preferred to post the flowers to honor 9/11 victims and commemorate our Diada.

Such a colorful and pretty picture!

I always thought that there should be a "ligue de protection des fleurs", like there is a "ligue de protection animale". Somebody's got to defend those poor flowers: they do not deserve to have to drink that colored water. Ok, yours are dried so it does not count but here in NYC, you can sometimes see a few cut flowers in bouquets that have those supernatural colors. It hurts a little each time I see that.

-That gives the picture some added value. Thanks Chandlermom
-I always try to enlarge pics when I see some image I like. They can really make you change your mind sometimes for the good. Thanks Clueless in Boston.
-Wendy I appreciate you like it.
-Eliane, you are right. Dead flowers are phoney. They are better up in nature, in the wild. Thanks for the remark. In fact I was attracted like a bee. I saw so many different colors that I couldn't help framing the bouquets. Then I flew away :)

I really liked the fact that you decided to use the flower photo because of it being 9/11, it was so thoughtful of you.
