It is our penultimate March Square

But as today’s date is even it means my penultimate #MarchSquare is a ‘Squaring the Circle’. Not a perfect ‘Squaring the Circle’ but they are rather special. My header one reflects the fact that the Scouting movement appears in nearly every parade here in Portugal, and the one below of course reminds us it is Easter this weekend. I came across them both last year at one of my favourite Algarvian festivals.

If you follow my Portuguese blog you may already which festival it is. It is called Festa das Tochas Floridas, and it takes place on Easter Sunday every year in São Brás de Alportel. The parade is both fun and extraordinarily beautiful, but what makes it so very special is the carpet of flowers on which they walk. I am so looking forward to seeing this again this year. Wishing everyone a Happy Easter, and if you have not yet participated in this month’s Square Photo Challenge it is not too late! Really it isn’t, as demonstrated perfectly by Kaz this morning.

    • That’s what Jude said too. I hadn’t really thought about it before, albeit I admit I always felt a little sad to see the carpets destroyed at the end. The joy though of the occasion I think just about makes it ok.
