I wonder if it will ever pass?!

I am still seeing squares and circles everywhere.

It is our penultimate March Square

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.

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.
