June is a month for weddings…..at least that is what everyone is saying. Well, since I am running behind in my wedding posts, I am taking this opportunity to create a short post about a New Year’s Eve wedding I had a pleasure of attending.
I have attended a Christmas season wedding before, but this was my first time at a New Year’s Eve wedding.
It actually was a lot of fun, because until midnight we all were enjoying a typical wedding atmosphere, but as the clock struck midnight the party switched to a New Year celebration.
This was a very traditional Ukrainian wedding, with the Starosty (Elders…Godparents carrying the icons), the Korovai – a Symbolic Ukrainian Wedding Bread, Greeting Bread with salt and wine, lots of embroidered runners (rushnyky), special Icons for the Newlyweds, the Wedding Cake of course, and lots…lots…lots…of food at the Cocktail Hour and at midnight at the Venetian Hour.
This time I will even share pictures of the dress of the Bride, the Bride’s Maids and the Starostyna (Godmother carrying the Icon).
My sister shared pictures of her currently blooming flowers, some of her veggies and fruits. All these plants will look very familiar to you all, but they are growing in a well-tended garden by my sister, in Cracow , Poland
All the rain showers we have been having lately washed off many of the early spring flowers, but new ones came up in their place.
Also my veggie garden is fully planted by now, so all this fine rain is great for my baby plants.
Today I will share some of the current flowers in my garden.
