1st of March: celebration of spring

In Romania, which has a four season climate, the first day of March is  considered to be the first day of spring. It is a day when guys give flowers to girls and an object which is called a martisor. Martisor is a small art-object like the ones bellow: these are hand made by a sculptor who is a friend of mine. They have also a white-red lace. As for flowers, I preferd this time tulips and roses.
