Flowers at Circus Maxentius


"What a beautiful spot this is. Go down the Appian Way on the bus to visit the various catacombs, then go further on and on the left you will find the Circus Maxentius a little way off the road to the left. Once a vast chariot racing centre with buildings and stables, tiered seats and no doubt concession stands and souvenir sellers, now a quiet set of ruins in a field. Great place for a picnic! The children in our group raced around the course - far longer than they realised, perhaps nearly a kilometre around". Taken by Alison Ryde

I love that you chose to show flowers that come up year after year and endure against something this old too. Wonderful framing!
