The Bluebell Fairy

“I’ll wait for you under the bluebells. I’ll be there always.”

Kim Harrison

Once upon a time in an old, forgotten cemetery lived a little bluebell fairy who was very lonely. As all her sisters, she was waking up only for few spring weeks every year, to take care of blooming flowers and paint them in the most enchanting colours.

Cherry blossoms fairytale in Edinburgh

“What a strange thing! To be alive
beneath cherry blossoms.”

Kobayashi Issa, Poems

There are several days every year, when Edinburgh turns into a pink fairytale.

All thanks to Sakura trees, blooming in many places in the city. You can hide in their shadow, waiting for a bus at the main street. You can look for them in some hidden corners of different disctricts or go for an enchanting walk along cherry alleys at the Meadows.

10 things I love about spring

“Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.”

Rainer Maria Rilke

Spring has come – time of wonders, inspiration and new chances!

If you follow my Instagram, you already know that spring is my favourite time of the year (along with autumn, but more about that another time). I don’t know how it works, but spring always makes me feel so refreshed and happy! It’s like coming back to life after long winter hibernation.

Snowdrops

Magical walk in search of snowdrops

A short photo story about some nice discoveries

25 February was almost like the first day of spring to me, although not long after that winter has come again to Scotland (more about that here). That day I decided to go for a walk in search of snowdrops and had really magical time, wandering along Water of Leith.
