Books & Orange Blossoms

I have a special connection to orange blossoms. Growing up in the Mediterranean the smell was all but too familiar. My mother would receive a big bag of orange blossoms from dear friends who had an orange orchard every year & she would make the most scrumptious jam out of them.

A happy & beautiful Baha'i New Year to those who are celebrating the first day of spring...& a very happy Birthday to my Papa, who brought beautiful things to this world just like the spring season!

P.S. Here is how we celebrated (my husband & I designed the backdrop of the event with some inspiration from one of my paintings). Also check out how other photographers from around the world celebrated at :

Newspaper Hats, Paper Pipes.

We have been celebrating life & new adventures a lot lately. This calls for a paper pipe with cotton smoke! & it's not bad for your health either...
