Have you ever heard of the Courtyards of Córdoba Festival? In the month of May, Córdoba – a city in Southern Spain –– bursts into bloom with beautiful displays of their patios. The festival starts off with a parade known as the “Battle of the Flowers,” where floats are adorned with fresh flowers as the judges choose the best float of the year, followed by fireworks, and musical performances throughout the event. With human creativity, patio decoration has taken a life of its own, and residents are ecstatic to share their hard work and beautiful creations with you. The Richard Magazine team was so intrigued by many of the talented individuals that were able to create these amazing works of art, that we set out to find more of the most beautiful and magical garden displays around the world that are worth your #OOTD (outfit of the day)!
