Floriile - PALM SUNDAY

Ortodocşii prăznuiesc, duminică, Floriile sau Duminica Stâlpărilor, cea mai importantă sărbătoare care vesteşte Paştele, rememorând intrarea lui Iisus în Ierusalim şi sărbătorindu-i, totodată, pe cei cu nume de flori.

In Romania and Moldova, Palm Sunday is known as Duminica Floriilor or simply Florii, translating Flowers' Sunday.
Romanian Orthodox are one week ahead of Easter Celebrations and this means today is Palm Sunday or Flower’s Sunday.
Since Romanians do not have palm trees we’re using willows in churches celebrating the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. Christians are then taking these branches and adorn their homes. Occasionally they are also using lilac flowers.
Palm Sunday is also Flower’s Sunday in Romania meaning that whoever wears a flower-related name is celebrated.(communication development)

The photographs of the people in their costumes, the flowers and the displays exhibit beauty and technical precision, Daliana, but the shot that fascinates me is the one of your duck frozen in the midst of what appears to be some manner of arabesque movement. Perhaps, our feathered friends have their own variation of Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake," and Mr. Mallard is among the dancers in an upcoming performance.

In any case, your entire Palm Sunday series has my admiration and my envy.
