I don’t know why, but these floral wreaths were floating in the river last week. The plain white one had the name of a school written on it. They have a florists’ programme there so I suppose it was some project to do with that.

  2. Wow. A mystery flotilla of flowers. Your idea of their origin makes sense, but I prefer the "mystery". What a lovely thing for you to see and share here.

    1. Ann, this was in my home town here in Sweden, in the river right in the centre of town. Putting wreathes in the water like this is not part of any Swedish tradition that I've ever heard of. Last week was a "recycling" week in our town though, with various activities to do with environment and recycling. So I'm thinking this may have been a contribution to that theme from the florists' education programme.

  8. Interesting display of flowers...I wonder what kind of 'ritual' or celebration it was? Very colorful.

  9. What a lovely idea. Patches of sweet autumnal colour floating gently by.

    It would be a nice way to remember someone...?

    To say goodbye, my father sent up a helium balloon with a note and a rose tied to the string when my mother died.

  10. Actually one of my first thoughts was to wonder if they were in honour of someone who died, but I could see nothing to support that.

  11. I'm thinking it's to memorialize someone that passed on?!! None the less, it's all so gorgeous and in a way...humbling!

  13. If it wasn't for a memorial it should have been - it's a lovely idea.
