“Be like a flower and turn your face to the sun.”
Well dressing is a very peculiar art of decorating (and therefore “dressing”) wells (=pozzi), springs or other water sources with pictures created using different plants. This very old custom is popular in the county of Derbyshire and is probably of Celtic origin.
The wells are “dressed”, or better, covered, with elaborate mosaic-like pictures made of flowers, leaves, petals, seeds, grass, tree bark, berries and moss. The well dressing season lasts from May to late September.
