Hello Spring! You are always a welcome arrival! Longer days, rising temperatures, flowers blooming everywhere… Even Barcelona’s buildings are flowering in your honor, showing off various decorative techniques, such as the sgraffito in its two-tone glory (above), and an interior version which has been painted over in just one colour (below).

Some buildings boast colourful mosaics (above) with floral motives, while other, more humble ones, apply a cast iron flower to a simple door (below).
