An sudden delight on our current go to to the Abruzzo Nationwide Park was that our keep coincided with a spiritual pageant in Pescasseroli the place the villagers keep up all evening to embellish the pavements with patterns created from flower petals and dyed sawdust.  I think that previously this was carried out fully with flowers – many gathered from the wild – however the sawdust is a extra environmentally (if lurid) various. The  ‘carpets’ run the size of the principle road within the previous a part of city and likewise lead between the 2 church buildings the place lots are held for the pageant.

  The other streets are decorated with boughs of May Blossom and a little square  had been turned into a mossy grotto with an altar at its centre.

The opposite streets are embellished with boughs of Could Blossom and a bit sq.  had been become a mossy grotto with an altar at its centre.

I loved the tree on its bed of sand with its bark trunk growing out of lawn mowings its flower petal frame and its carefully constructed flowers and leaves.

I cherished the tree on its mattress of sand with its bark trunk rising out of garden mowings its flower petal body and its rigorously constructed flowers and leaves.

By the next night – as soon as the pageant was over – it began to get fairly ragged rounds the sides and all that had been so rigorously created was swept away – actually.
