Blooming Friday - Hidden

A tough assignment this Friday. What would I be looking for that is hidden from me? Got to be flowers. I'm always looking for flowers wherever I go. How about the time I was in Spain? I first stepped on Spanish soil when we landed in Barcelona from Amsterdam. In Amsterdam, it was only a transit stop for two hours, so I didn't get the chance to go looking for tulips in Amsterdam.

May in Barcelona was a time for blooms, so I first searched for Blooms to feature on Blooming Friday in Barcelona. (I do get carried away with alliterations these days, forgive me for this phase I'm in). I met this mixture of flowers at Las Ramblas, and thought 'it' would be the right thing to ask where the spring flowers were hidden as this guy was dressed up as "Spring".

I walked down the Las Ramblas and saw what others (or at least one other) apparently sought.Oh no, these were not what I had in mind. Moving on...

Then at the end of the famous one kilometre promenade right through the city centre, I caught a glimpse of something hidden behind the crowd at Placa  Catalunya...could they be roses?


As I approached the fountain, I saw what was hidden from roses...ahhh, I found you!!!

They looked like iceberg roses, but were not climbers, just low borders of masses of white bouquet roses.

Dear Katarina, so if I'm a trifle late at submitting my Barcelona Roses for Blooming Friday, it was because they were hidden from me.

Do visit Katarina's blog to see what else is HIDDEN! You may be looking for the link to click is not hidden. Just scroll down to the bottom of the page and you'll find it there.
