Fiestas de La Cruz Photos in Tenerife

Found a beautiful set of photos of the Fiestas de la Cruz in Güímar, Tenerife from yesterday, May 3rd, 2006, on Flickr.

Here is just a taster: couple of examples so you know that this set (two pages worth) is a must-see.

And, you don't have to have the slightest interest in the religious aspects to appreciate the talent and work that goes into the huge number of crosses and other floral adornments that are made annually for this fiesta.

The set, which comes from "Mataparda", Jose Mesa, who lives in Tenerife and writes the blog, Liferfe, contains almost 120 spectacularly beautiful images. Click to see them.

Even the cat gets enramado (dressed up in plant material) for the occasion! :)
