These yellow flowers, known locally as “Brnistra” or Spanish broom flowers are native to the mediterranean region according to my research. They happen to be in bloom over these recent weeks since i arrived.
I think they have a lovely romance about them mixed with the general atmosphere of the place, and they’ve silently taunted me through my peripherals as i zoom past various fields on my scooter.. so it became a necessity of heart and mind to pay tribute through my creative flow. They only last for a few weeks and it seems now they are reaching the tail end of bloom.. My fleeting window of opportunity has been quite stressful, so now i can take a deep breath and relax. :)
The creation required a unique form to match the Brnistra’s tall aesthetic, and i must say, things flowered beautifully . . . I immediately fell in love with the resulting combination of style and form.
