Nowroz - The New Day or the Rebirth or the first day of the spring...
Nowruz , meaning "The New Day" ; is the name of the Iranian New Year in the Solar Hijri calendar. Nowruz is also referred to as the Persian New Year.
Nowruz marks the first day of spring or Equinox as and the beginning of the year in the Persian calendar. It is celebrated on the day of the astronomical Northward equinox, which usually occurs on March 21 or the previous/following day depending on where it is observed. The moment the sun crosses the celestial equator and equalizes night and day is calculated exactly every year and families gather together to observe the rituals.
Nowruz is celebrated by people from diverse ethnic communities and religious backgrounds for thousands of years. It is a secular holiday that is enjoyed by people of several different faiths. It originated in Persia in one of the capitals of the Achaemenid empire in Persis in Iran and is also celebrated by the cultural region that came under Iranian influence or had migrations by Persians including Azerbaijan, the greater Kurdistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and other scattered populations in Central Asia.

Taaaa antik İran'dan bu yana, günümüze kadar gelen bir gelenek.
Herkes'e kutlu olsun.

Very nice flower arrangement in excellent light and nice colors. Like the composition, the beautiful flower details in superb light. Nice focus and depth of field. Light is good, maintaining the integrity of the colors. Very pretty.
Very well done.

Good presentation for the Persian new year, I like the symbolism with the newly bloomed flowers and the yet to bloom buds. The colour contrast between the pink and the green is excellent. I have read that this was a major festival in India during the Islamic rule 500 years ago, but now only a very small Persian community celebrate it. A fine photo, thanks for sharing.

Very beautiful flowers in this razor sharp and perfectly exposed photo. The colours are amazing. Since this is not a new picture I wouldn't know how far spring has advanced in Istanbul this year, but i guess you are in any case way ahead of us. Yesterday morning Stockholm was again covered in a thick layer of fresh snow. Today everything was gone, the streets were dry and the sun was shining. For another month, at least, anything could happen.

Hello dear Mesut - As you prepare for spring, we wait for autumn. The days get shorter and the shops are full of winter clothes! I wish I was in Istanbul to enjoy the flowering of the spring plants and trees. This is a lovely reminder of the beauty of tender new leaves and colourful flowers.

Hallo lieber Mesut!
Es ist jedes Jahr das Gleiche und immer wieder ist man fasziniert von dem Neubeginn in der Natur. Dein Foto lässt diese Faszination gut nachvollziehen. Schon diese eigentlich einfachen Blüten haben in ihrer Volkommenheit und Schönheit etwas faszinierendes. Ein wunderschönes Bild.
Ich hätte es Dir gerne erspart - aber dies kommt zu meinen Favoriten! ;-)
Alles Gute aus dem nasskalten und grauen Deutschland.
