Everywhere You Look! Flowers!
May 4, 2018 1:52pm CST
Zalipie, Poland, is the place to be for those who love flowers. Practically everything in Zalipie displays lovely hand-painted flowers. According to legend, wood-burning stoves left unsightly smoke and soot smudges on houses, and those ugly smudges had to be hidden from view. Residents of Zalipie decided to cover those ugly smudges with flower after flower, painted by hand. The folks in Zalipie loved the look of those hand-painted flowers, and they decided that everything in town looked better when covered with hand-painted flowers. Wishing wells are adorned with hand-painted flowers in Zalipie. Dog houses display lovely hand-painted flowers too. Even rooms inside homes are graced with hand-painted flowers. Chicken coops can be rather drab-looking structures, but not in Zalipie. Chicken coops have experienced the hand-painted flower treatment too. Winter in Poland can be pretty blah, so those hand-painted flowers all over the place surely must make a Polish winter easier to handle.

That's amazing, Deb. More towns should follow suit. I'd think less people would be depressed there too, unless other factors are involved. I just met a gal from Poland earlier this week. I will ask her another time whether she's ever heard of this town.
