ОЩЕ ПРОЛЕТНИ КРАСОТИ! / MORE SPRING BEAUTIES!

Вече ходя на пазар с фотоапарат в чантата!:))) Избирам си нови маршрути, само и само да надникна в повече дворчета и да обходя повече малки улички. Пролетта твори неуморно и сменя картините си или ги дообогатява твърде често. Опитвам се да следвам темпото й!
These days, when Spring is creating her marvels with such an inspiration, I go shopping with ... the camera in my bag!:))) Every time I choose new routes with the only intention to see more gardens and to walk along smaller streets, far away from the traffic and closer to nature.

 
 

 
Тези цветя растат в съседни дворове...
These flowers grow in the yards of neighbouring houses.
 
 
Как да не се препичаш на слънчице!...
Mmmmm, the sun is so caressing!
Така е в нашия град - само трябва да вдигнеш поглед...
If you pass by old buildings and raise your eyes, usually you can see someone watching you from the facades...
Една скъпа моя блог-приятелка разглеждала стари мои постове и така попаднала на "рисунките" ми с ориз и леща. Сетих се, че имам запечатани още подобни весели моменти от приготвянето на ястия. Ето някои от тях...

A very dear blog-friend of mine told me that she had discovered in my old posts some funny "drawings" with rice and lentils. (You could see them under the label "cooking"). Well, here are some more. As a matter of fact I've taken them  long ago - recently I'm usually in a hurry when I cook.
 
Хубаво прекарване на почивните дни - слънцето е гарантирано, дано намерите начин да се разведрите!
We are having summer temperatures in Bulgaria, hope it's the same in most parts of Europe. But whenever you live, I wish you to have a fantastic week-end!

  1. I can see that you enjoy everyday life! I like to take photos of my surroundings too but 'rice drawing' is something new...

  3. Rossichka, I am so glad to say that it's getting a bit more springlike here in New York, too.

    I am also glad to see that rice and lentils are not just to be appreciated by one of our senses.

    Do you know of the puppeteer Basil Twist? I have read an article in the April 15, 2013 issue of The New Yorker magazine about him, written by Joan Accocella, who usually writes about dance. Perhaps it will be possible to access this article via www.newyorker.com

    If not, and if you are interested, I would be so happy to send the printed article to you.

    1. Dear Frances, I'm sure spring will show its full splendour in New York pretty soon!
      Thank you so much for telling me about Basil Twist! No, I haven't heard about him, but I'm going to read the article and watch the video from April, 25th in a while!
      Have a beautiful Friday!:)

  5. Beautiful, beautiful spring post!, it's good to know you're enjoying to the best this spring, here, Spring and Winter are still dancing along, you know, one warm day, and the next cold and windy, so, not many flowers yet in my garden, but it will happen soon, then I will think of your flowers and will think they might have a good day together with ours!!
    Amazing Rice art, I love it!!
    have a wonderful week-end

    1. I remember when you moved to Canada and began to make your garden... It'll be nice to see a picture of it one day! We could gather our flowers through Photo Shop or in a collage...:)
      I didn't expect that rice "drawings" will be liked so much, thank you, Ale!x

  6. Dear friend, we had a cold rainy day and to see all that flowers make me happy! When I was young I wanted to be a cat and just lie lazy in a warm spot, bothered by nothing, only some mouse catching when your belly told you so.
    You know I LOVE your rice art, but the rice is part of something bigger. You have the ability to see art in everything and make art of ordinary things. That's a big talent! Hugs from Hedwig!

    1. Dear Hedwig, can you imagine that we have temperatures around 30 degrees Celsius?! No coats, pullovers, shawls, socks... a drastic change in dressing just in a day or two! And the weather will stay hot in the next 10 days. This year we, the Christians, celebrate Easter from 4th till 6th May, so lovely sunny days are expecting us! I wish the same to you!
      You make me blush with what you've written about my rice "drawings"! I don't think this is art, for I make it just for fun... Thanks for encouraging me! I see figures in most amazing objects and places and maybe I'll write about this some day...
      Lovely weekend to you and those whom you love!:)xx

  9. Dear Rossichka,

    You got it right, I had the pleasure of enjoying your warm (even hot) temperatures last week. Such a beautiful country you live in! It was also good to read about the traditions here in your blog, the tradition of Martenitsas is so sweet, we saw so many trees with the bracelets. Can´t wait to get back there one day again.

    Enjoy those walks for me too with the flowers and colour green, in Finland we had 30°C less in the night when we arrived.

    1. Dear Anna Emilia,
      I can't believe that you've just been here!!! Now I remember (if I'm not wrong) that you have a relative of yours living in Bulgaria... I can't explain exactly what I felt, when I saw the first two photos, but they HIT my heart and I thought for less than a second: "Bulgaria!"....Please, PROMISE me to give me a call when you come again one day! I live not far away from the Black Sea and I will be happy to meet you in person!
      I'm very glad that you spent some nice time in my country - just imagine how hot it is here in summer. :D That's why people are running to the seaside or to the mountains!
      Wishing you a warmer weather soon!
      Hugs!

  12. Hey, Rossi!!
    how I missed this post????
    I can not believe it!
    the facades of these buildings got very beautiful sculptures, I think I'd raise my view, if I were there, I would run into something at every moment because I would walk looking at the buildings :)
    Your creations with rice and lentils, are wonderful, I know you do not have much time, but it would be nice to see more, maybe you could play around with the colors of the different cereals, lentils, peas, corn, rice, would be great , right?
    I send you a kiss, heart friend!

    1. I like your idea, Roberto! Maybe I'll try it, when I have material, time and good mood to "catch" the inspiration... :) Your postman doesn't suppose at all that two envelopes are travelling to him. Just imagine how many other hands touch, select and throw them in between their stops in the different countries!
      Today we coloured the eggs - husband, son and me (we celebrate Easter in the weekend). We had a great time together and the result is: picturesque eggs, coloured by different techniques.
      All the buildings from the 19th and the early 20th centuries were built by European architects. Their influence came to our town across the river Danube. That's why Rousse has an unique atmosphere! Don't worry, if you are here, I won't allow you to stumble!:)
      Wishing you smiles and cosy moments!xx

  13. Hi, my friend, Black Sea mermaid!
    I suppose, that your country has also its own architecture without European influences and must be very beautiful
    ok. not work more than necessary, take your time to have fun, (eg painting Easter eggs with your loved ones)
    and I wish you a good weekend!!!!!!!

    1. Oh, you are such a gentleman and a sweet friend, Roberto!! I wish I were a mermaid in another, fairy-tale life, but I'm rather like a sea-shell... :)
      Of course, that we have our traditional architecture! I had a post about Plovdiv - here are some more photos of its old part...

      By the way, this site deserves attention - here you can see a lot from Bulgaria and in several languages, incuding Spanish!:) - http://bulgariatravel.org/

      And this is the town of Koprivshtitza with its unique houses:

      Unfortunatey I haven't been everywhere, I think it's not possible! That's why we try to stop here and there, when travelling by car...

      Tomorrow we are having our habitual workshop and after that will enjoy the Easter holiday!

    2. Thank you very much!!!!!
      Rossichka, you left me speechless.
      Really really really, Bulgaria has a huge architectural beauty!
      all pictures of houses, buildings and... castles? I saw are very beautiful. impressed me a house, with its facade, painted blue :O
      and also Bulgaria has natural beauty, landscapes,sea, forest, mountains, a huge cave?
      small streets with stone walls. all beautiful, congratulations on your beautiful country!
      I have a question for you. why Bulgaria is not Europe?
      I know you have a lot of work, you can answer me next week, yes? thanks :)
      I'm surprised that you celebrate Easter now,
      We celebrate Easter in 27, 28, 29, 30, March!!!!

      OK Happy Easter to you and your family!

  14. Hi! We celebrate Easter now, because (the quote is from Google): "Many Orthodox churches base their Easter date on the Julian calendar, which often differs from the Gregorian calendar that is used by many western countries. Therefore the Orthodox Easter period often occurs later than the Easter period that falls around the time of the March equinox."
    In less than an hour we'll go to the church, we'll walk round it three times and we'll bring home the Holy Fire. Tomorrow we'll fight with Easter eggs and will eat the extremely delicious Kozunak -

    Yes, Roberto, Bugaria is a very beautiful country, thanks for the nice words! It's small, but has everything: the Black Sea, several mountains, numerous caves, delicious fruits and vegetables, magnificent nature... It is famous with the Bugarian Rose, the Bulgarian Yogurt, the folk music, the golden treasures... Its history is dramatic and exceptional. Bilgaria has always been in Europe!! Only that the Ottoman yoke, that lasted for 5 centuries, and the Iron Curtain kept it isolated from the other world too long... My dear friend, this is a huge theme, thank you for your interest! Just to add that Bulgaria was established in the year of 681!
    Bye! xx
