Blossom Time

Some early Spring trees are blooming in Tbilisi and I’m so excited. I walk in the city like a shopaholic in a shopping mall, searching for the perfect Spring accessory – beautiful blossoms!

And I like all of them! Especially plum blossoms, which usually open well before the leaves, creating a cloud of white flowers against a backdrop of leafless branches.

After a warm February in Tbilisi, plum and apple trees have already reached full bloom.

I love them when they are at their brightest and best!

This is a tiny part of my tree blossom collection:

That’s all for today. In a couple of days I will post more blossom photos. I promise!

Have a great Spring day,

Shorena

Tiny Life is Bursting Out

I’m fascinated when spring starts winning over winter – when green leaves burst out of the ground and stretch up towards the sun.

Sometimes they emerge from very barren places and begin their struggle to survive and thrive. This little plant was my favorite!

These Beautiful Waterlilies…

Water lilies are one of the most beautiful and elegant plants in the world. They symbolize different things in different countries – rebirth and optimism, creation, fertility, purity and pleasure, peace and spiritual enlightenment, sexuality, abundance and innocence, etc.

These colorful photos I took last summer in Tbilisi Botanical Garden, gardening center ‘Gardenia’ and some other places.

…And I’m looking forward to time when I can go for waterlily ‘photo hunt’ again.

Have a nice time,

Shorena

First days of spring. A walk with my camera

A couple of days ago I went on a photo walk. I didn’t find too many blooming flowers, but it’s clear – season of flowers is just around the corner!

Here are more results of my photo-adventure:

At the end of day I had nice cup of cappuccino.

In one word, it was a very lovely day.

Enjoy your time too,

Shorena

Stunning Ginger Street Cat enjoyed our meal!

We met this ginger gentleman some time ago in a McDonald’s restaurant. He was sitting at the edge of the outdoor seating area like a colorful cat statue. 

When we sat down to eat, he suddenly appeared at our table and waited patiently until we offered to share our meal. He didn’t beg or make a fuss and politely declined to eat cheese and French fries. He accepted only burgers. 

I was so pleased he was not keen on my vegetarian meal. However, the meat eaters in my family ended up with smaller than normal Big Macs! 😄😄

However, everyone was happy, especially our Ginger Street Cat guest. 

Enjoy your time,

Shorena
