Novruz decorations

Gardens of the Palace of Sheki Khans,  Azerbaijan,  March 2017

March is the month of spring celebrations in Azerbaijan.  Green grass, colourful flowers and brightly decorated eggs adorn gardens and balconies as part of the Novruz festivities.  As the real weather does not necessarily comply with the celebration timings, plastic plays a significant role.

A colourful note:  the razzmatazz Crayola shade appeared in 1992 as part of a naming competition.  It was officially given its jazzy title by the 5½ year old winner.

The term razzmatazz  is normally used to refer to a noisy and attention-grabbing activity.  It is also the name of a song; a raspberry-flavoured liqueur;  a berry-flavoured smoothie; and a 1960s cruise ship.

  1. These colors would be hard to overlook:) Am surprised that they have plastic as their solution.
    A totally different subject, please could you give us your theme for coming Sunday (One Word Sunday Photo)? Thank you! (I’m prepping posts ahead) Hope your travel is going smooth:)


      1. Thank you! How fun to be there with your daughter:) Did you see the Gaudi cathedral? That’s next to where my son had the office of his internship (an upscale travel agency).
        I can be organized because ‘m not traveling like you, with frequent jet lag! Don’t know how you do it:):)
