Tirso de Molina

Click on image to enlarge it!
This is the new "Mercado de las Flores" (Flower Market) in Tirso de Molina. The square has been redesigned to give a new perspective and a new life because it used to be a shortly umkempt place for homeless (but it was not too bad). It was something controversial (a flower market in downtown?) but I guess it happens with every change, there are people who love it and people who hate it.
Yesterday there was also a flamenco live-perfomance to make an atmosphere.

Este es el nuevo mercado de las Flores en Tirso de Molina. La plaza ha sido remodelada hace poco, un cambio de cara para darle una nueva vida, ya que era un sitio algo abandonado donde habitaban mendigos (esto suena mal, pero la plaza no era tampoco la ciudad sin ley). Ha sido algo polémico (un mercado de flores en el centro?) pero supongo que es algo que pasa con los cambios, siempre hay a quien le gusta y a quien le disgusta.
Ayer también había un concierto de flamenco para darle ambientillo.

It certainly looks to a nice bright place now with all the flowers and the shoppers passing by.

I am stunned. I just posted a piece about dead flowers and life and your beautiful photograph shows how we do it. Amazing.

i would be the one who loves such a change, flowers give a lovely mood, even if it is considered superficial :)

When I look at your and other`s photos from a southern part of Europe, I can see clearly a difference, what is between southern and Northern Europe, for instance today`s photos, what you and Alice have and what I have.
November and April are just those months, when we should take an holiday there.
Beautiful week to you!

Your street scenes work so well,D. I've tried a couple for Richmond but there is always something missing. I find out why the "atmosphere" is missing, then I'll start publishing. Photos have "feelings". If that is missing, it is no good.

I know that AL does not believe in "killing" flowers by cutting and selling them (check his blog), but I adore blossoms in my home. I miss lots about Mazatlan already, but especially the markets. Lucky you to have this one (Sorry Abe!!)

I can't imagine anyone not liking a flower market!

Se ve un lugar bastante animado y agradable para pasear y comprarle un presente a un ser querido.

While I can understand that some people might be resistant to change, why would anyone not like a flower market?

it's not only because the flower market, it's because the square it's not like it used to be, and when they were remodelating it, some of the old trees it got were removed to placed the market, and that make some peolple angry, because lots of old (but healthy trees) has been removed to make changes in Madrid these last years.

GMG, it was a Sunday full of people everywhere!

I personally think it's a nice place now, and all the flowers (they're not dead, they're on a flowerpot) give a colourful enviroment :)

I used to live right near this plaza, on C/ Meson de Paredes. The plaza looks so much better now- thanks for the great picture!
