Zalipie, Poland, is the place to be for those who love flowers. Practically everything in Zalipie displays lovely hand-painted flowers.

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.

I thought it was such a great idea. Those flowers must brighten the moods of the residents. Yes, I wonder too if the lady you met knows of this town.

Yes, and I bet they have to touch up those flowers all the time due to rain and snow.

I think everyone just decided to do everything in flowers. There probably are those who would be overwhelmed by all those flowers.
