The first of March is the day of “Baba Marta” in Bulgaria marking the end of Winter. On this day, people give each other the so called “martenitsi”, small red and white thread dolls (called Pizho and Penda (Пижо и Пенда), interwoven string bracelets – sometimes with other little trinkets attached wishing a “ЧЕСТИТА БАБА МАРТА” – “Happy Grandma March”.

Der erste März ist in Bulgarien der Tag der “Baba Marta” und zeichnet das Ende des Winters. An diesem Tag schenken sich die Menschen einander sogenannte “Martenizi”, kleine rot-weiße Püppchen (namens Pizho und Penda (Пижо и Пенда), geflochtene Armbänder aus roten und weißen Wollfäden – manchmal mit kleinen Schmuckstücken angehängt und wünschen sich “ЧЕСТИТА БАБА МАРТА” – “Glückwunsch zum Großmütterchen März”.

Having had an unusual hot and dry summer, it wasn’t until September that we could work on the roses again. While our so called “Sidekick” field has been trimmed to base level this year just after the rose harvest and regrown quite healthy, the “Little ones” had a tough time without any water.
