Baba Marta (Granny March) by 

On the 1st of March Bulgarians celebrate a traditional feast called “Baba Marta” (Grandma March) related to welcoming the approaching spring. On this day people exchange and wear martenitsa – a small piece of decoration, made of twined red and white threads. It is worn either pinned to the clothes, or tied around the wrist until one sees a stork for the first time in the season. The red and white colors symbolize the wish for good health and happiness.

This is my martenitsa for my friends here at RB!
May you be happy and healthy throughout the year!

I am pretty much a self taught photographer. I became interested in photography in the last few years. I enjoy taking pictures of flowers, nature scenes, ancient monuments.
