St Ivan’s wreath

St Ivan’s wreaths were woven from white and yellow flowers at the 24th of June. In old days they would adorn house doors, for the whole year, just to bring prosperity, health, happiness to old settlers of Goriska Brda villages. There was a red rose in the wreath on the house with a girl old enough to be married. They used to burn the old wreaths, that would bring good fate to the house…. .. This old tradition is now reborn, the photo has been taken in village Smartno, Goriska Brda.

First snowdrops

slika063

In the garden snowdrops have finally reappeared. They do show up each spring, but this time I’ve almost missed them. White patches of the last February snow perfectly camouflage tiny white bells I’ve been impatiently waiting since days became few minutes longer. How can these small flowers bring so much joy? Their flowers tiny and white as fresh snow of winter that lasts too long have light green patches , even lighter fresh green stems and leaves of the color green ┬áthat is the very first green nuance of the spring to come. Promising sun and pink flowers in the orchard.
