A POEM A DAY - 'ROSES DEL LLOBREGAT'



The town of St Feliu de Llobregat is known for its roses. It holds a rose festival every year in May and this lovely flower was still blooming in February in the Rose Garden. This garden was planted in 1999 in honour of the local rose growing families 'Dot' and 'Camprubi'. There are over 20,000 roses with 40 varieties in the garden.  The towns people become known as 'Roses del Llobregat' during the civil war when towns with religious names were renamed.
