Each of the bridges across the river, automobile and pedestrian all have been decorated with hundreds of flower displays. Really makes for a wonderful walk any time of day.

The Odet river flows through the centre of Quimper. There are several bridges along it - they were all beautifully arrayed with containers of flowers.
