Flower Market in Greve

As every year for the last ten years, she waits to see some of us appearing on the door. When she sees us, she aks “Quando è la mostra de’ fiori?” (When is the flower market ?)... She refers to Greve flower market: it is a tradition ,it means Spring for everybody here in Tuscany and her question means “Are you going? Could I come with you???”

This is our eighty-five years old neighbor, so active and so interested in planting something every spring and having a few vases of flowers. And the Greve Market flower, the first weekend of May , is the best occasion to buy and especially to enjoy the arriving of the Good Season.
Colours : nuances of pink, red ,orange, green and blue. Roses, gerberas, dahlias, clematidis ..Even this rainy year all the flowers enchant your eyes and their perfumes inebriates you . Greve square is so charming then and you can feel yourself immerse in flowers like only a little fairy could be. It’ what our neighbor told me.
