More blossoms, more colours

and a walk in the park.


Spring is here!

It’s Spring and I really hope it stays that way! Insanely happy yesterday to take photos of every blossomed tree in Stadtpark (I guess humans are functioning on solar¬†batteries, otherwise I can’t explain the energy boost):

Surprisingly, when I processed the photos I saw in some of them several a white-red threads hanging on the three branches. For the new readers of this blog – this is a Martisor, a Romanian, but also Bulgarian and apparently as well Greek, Albanian & Italian spring custom.

So yes, let me shout one more time loud and clear: Spring is here! ūüôā

The entire set can be seen here and more flower photos here.


A friend of mine posted this video marking the¬†Romanian Spring festival –¬†Martisor¬†and the song just got stuck in my head. I didn’t hear it in a long time and the symphonic version is simply beautiful.

I tried to search for a translation of the lyrics, but didn’t have too much luck.

In any case, I hope you enjoy the music. And the Spring.
