Happy Novruz! Happy Spring!

Happy Novruz! Happy Spring!

Spring is here and it means Novruz to Azerbaijan and several other countries around the world. It is time to celebrate the arrival of spring, the nature’s awakening, new life, and new beginnings. Semeni, sprouted wheat, is the symbolf of this holiday and every table in Azerbaijan has one ready for the celebration.

Happy spring, friends! May it brings lots of happy moments to your lives and may it bring peace to the world!

Here’s a brief photo session I recently did with my daughter Meltem. She is dressed in a traditional Azerbaijani dance costume and is holding a plate with semeni.

Enjoy and Happy Novruz!
