"Art in Bloom" Show Brightens Usable Space

Two of nature’s most profound forms of expression came together during the July 18 th to July 20 th Art in Bloom show at The Spanish Village. The presentation matched floral arrangements with paintings to create a masterful display of coordinated color.

The air is sweet and salty and the waves make background noise that eventually moves its way into the background of your awareness after a half hour or so. Visitors stroll the coastal area to keep themselves busy exploring both the businesses and the sights. In San Diego there are many coves and inlets that rise up like towers from the ocean floor. Birds of varying species hang off cliffs making nests and scanning food.

Visitors can find a smooth walk in search of sea lions, gazing at the ocean or watching kayaks paddle their way into the bay.
