Festival of Flowers 2013

A few days ago at Pioneer Courthouse Square, I saw people setting out small pots of flowers in a pattern that had been outlined in chalk:IMG_2078And now, the 2013 Festival of Flowers is in full bloom! This year’s design is a tattoo, seen in this aerial view from the PCS’s Facebook page:Aerial View from PCS FBYesterday, I visited the Square again. The clouds had cleared, and it warmed up enough for some people to wear short sleeves.
