Welcome to another month of our Int’l Blogger Club Monthly Challenge! As you already may know, I teamed up a group of bloggers from around the world and each month we are sharing different topics and traditions, and I can tell you it is really fun! Last month we talked about Easter, and this month we thought Spring would be a nice thing to talk about, and even share with you the flowers we have in our countries.
We did some research to find out our national flower, and the one for Spain is carnation. I don’t know who is in charge of deciding each country flower, but I haven’t seen carnations in balconies or gardens since I was young (younger lol!). But you can really see them in the south of Spain because they resist the sun very well. I guess even we live in the same country, we have different climates so our flowers are different too.
Here in Mallorca you can find lots of different wild flowers in the fields, most of them daisies.
You can find also lots of almond trees, oranges trees and lemon trees.
Today some friends asked us to meet and enjoy the wonderful weather we’re having these days. The kids could play together, and I could help them with an organic garden they are planning. The place where it is supposed to be was full of flowers, so we had to take them out.
It was a shame to just throw them away, so we decided to use as many as we could and make some arrangements. Flowers everywhere to give us joy! Proserpina is back so her mom is happy!
Despite we live on an island it is green as you can see. This winter has been odd and it didn’t rain too much, and it’s not been cold either.
After dinner, kids wanted to go egg hunting so we improvised a map, some clues and some badges.
They had a great time looking for the things we hide, and we enjoyed seeing them team up and work together.
After that, it was time to get rid of the dry wood and sticks we took out the garden, and we thought having a bonfire would be a great idea. Flashlights, songs, stories, fire… is there anything better?
So these are basically the flowers we can find on Spring around here, what about yours?
I can’t wait to see my friends’ flowers, I hope they have been luckier that me!
