Winter solstice, midwinter is gone! Alhamdulillah, the shortest day with the longest night is past now! The day is getting longer, few minutes everyday!
In all cultures since counting of time, winter solstice was celebrated with a festival, in northern countries mostly because the hard winter starts now. From January to april many people starved.
Times has changed in western europe so much, hardly people starve anymore because of the cold in times of globalization and refridgerators.
Does someone know, how this ice was formed on the flower? 😉
