GUL E NERGIZ (KURDISH FLOWER)

Nergis flowerDear friends its that time of the year. Well it is March and spring is getting closer. Although I have not experienced spring in  Kurdistan as my family migrated elsewhere, I have been told and seen total beauty through images and videos. In Kurdistan grows one of the most beautiful flowers known as Gul e Nargiz (Nergiz flower). A flower which announces the beginning of spring and it is related to Newroz, the Kurdish New Years. (celebrated March 21st of each year).

Each year people sell on the streets or around picnic areas Nergiz flowers fresh from the mountains of Kurdistan.
