This first image is of the 'chimney pots' on top of the Palau Guell. The large town-house/mansion. Designed by Gaudi for Eusebi Guell and his family. Gaudi's architecture is inspired by botanical and biological forms. His study of them led to unique structural solutions to engineering and aesthetic considerations.
Here is a close-up picture of some fuschia I noticed growing in Madrid.
The photo for this weeks ikebana is of some blossom I noticed protruding through the medieval wall in Girona, a small town outside Barcleona with a roman past
