Winter Flowers (26/100)

Risking to end our unanticipated Friday tradition of presenting more/better pictures as part of this 100 days project, here are a few pictures from the T─ôrbatas street flower market.

Most of the length of a city block along one side of the Vermanes Park is given over to flower shops. During the summer, their colorful bouquets spill out onto the sidewalk, creating a long wall of flowers. Latvians, of course, cannot just go without flowers through the winter, so the flower shops move their products into the cramped little indoor spaces they are allotted.

The parks and the flowers, my two favorite things about the Riga Old Town area.
