A FLOWER COVERED RIVER EMBANKMENT

A FLOWER COVERED RIVER EMBANKMENT

Madeira

The three rivers that divide Funchal are covered with netting to support trailing shrubs, and are enclosed by high embankments to prevent the fierce flash floods that tore down the mountains and caused loss of life in days gone by. Little more than streams when we were there, but 2 weeks before had been raging torrents for 3 days when Madeira experienced their worst storm for 50 years.
