If you thought Utopia does not exist, let me tell you a little story about a far-away village that is so flowery that you might start to think you’ve had it with flowers forever.
Once upon a time, in a small Polish village called Zalipie, somebody painted a flower on their ceiling. They did it to cover a soot mark, and covering soot stains became a flowery tradition. Eventually, everything in town was covered in flowers. But now one grandma is making another town special, too.
This 90-year-old grandma spends every spring and summer adorning windows and door frames with majestic designs in Louka, Czech Republic. Age is just a number after all!
Anežka (Agnes) Kašpárková, who is a former agricultural worker, picked up the hobby from other local women. She started using vibrant blue paint and a small brush, and created intricate floral patterns inspired by traditional Moravian (southern Czech) artwork. The granny insists this is pure pleasure for her. “I am an artist,” she stated to Czech media. “I just enjoy it and I want to help.”
