St. Cernin was a surprise stop on my exploratory trip around the Gramat Causse last week. How could I not stop in a village all decked out in these whimsical and colorful bouquets of plastic flowers? Every lamp post and street sign boasted a bunch of blooms!..
Even the mairie was decorated...
The 'flowers' were actually plastic bottles cut and shaped into petals. Some were colored; some bottles were clear with colors and designs painted on them. Very clever!
I was surprised by something else in the village, though. That story is for tomorrow's blog post.
