Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Wedding flowers, Madrid, August 2022

Observations outside the Basílica pontificia de San Miquel, Madrid, early in the evening of Friday 12 August 2022.

Entrance to church with women waiting with baskets of dried rose (Rosa cvs) petals for guests to scatter over the bridal couple as they leave.

Detail of swag decorating the railings to the church entrance steps (the interior of the church appeared to have no additional flowers for the wedding).
