Perhaps this is why Guatemala’s slogan is “El País de la Eterna Primavera” or “The country of the Eternal Spring” for those of you who can’t read Spanish. As I mentioned yesterday, in Antigua Guatemala, flowers blossom all year round. Perhaps the reason we have flowers all year long is our temperate weather, rich volcanic soils and constant humidity. I mean, we are less than a month of way from the commencement of the Winter season, and we have plenty of sunshine and temperature rarely drop below 7°C/45°F. Another benefit, is, of course, how inexpensive flowers are in Guatemala. For instance, this was flower arrangement was photographed at a time of a comedor (diner) and each table had a similar, but different flower arrangement.
By the way, the reason, I am sharing these colourful flowers is because I know many of you live in places where the cold weather has already arrived and flowers are not a common sight. Enjoy!
