Remember when I squealed and complained how crappy and difficult my February was and how desperately I wanted it to end? Well, it did obviously end but has March been all about good luck and happy days? Indeed not! I've already stepped on a very old rake, figuratively speaking of course but still, what a stupid thing to do! And I don't understand where does all my spare time disappear. Fortunately I do understand my whining doesn't solve anything but real actions do. And besides, I've also experienced some pleasant events I can share with you today. For instance March 5 was filled with culture and music: myself and my female colleagues attended a beautiful Women's Day concert in our local cultural centre.
Koit Toome, a musician who won the Estonian version of Your Face Sounds Familiar in 2013 sang and played the synth and Jorma Puusaag mastered his shiny guitar. Like I said it was an excellent concert and one of my favourite songs from that night was Looking for Freedom (came out as a single from legendary David Hasselhoff in 1989; listen/watch the original song and groovy 80s' fashion here and Koit's Your Face Sounds Familiar version here). By the way, what was the last concert you went to?
Anyway, another pleasant day was March 1 when I and E. visited entirely two delightful orchid exhibitions in good old Tartu. It was our 4th year of those flowery visits and all my photos originate from that day. So, in the first place we saw a smaller exhibition in our favourite gardening centre (the first two collages). And then arrived the botanical garden's turn.
It was the fifth orchid exhibition there and I think it was also the best one so far. I could totally see the improvement and what as well impressed me was the usage of dresses, furniture and other objects (such as beauty products, curtains (I and E. both loved those!), tableware etc.) with orchids on them, real or photos, it didn't matter, I loved the idea. And I hope you enjoy the exhibition through my photos even if you can't actually sense the tropical summery air around the whole thing (outside we had +1 or +2°C that day so it was quite a contrast!).

And last but certainly not least my usual modest sale shopping section. So, this time I shopped in Cropp and grabbed a fierce studded bracelet (€3.99) and a pair of even sharper earrings with shiny rhinestones (€1.49). And as I already said I hope you enjoyed all the flower power!
Let me know what your thoughts are and see you next time when I will tell you about another orchid exhibition we attended in the capital town on Women's Day. Oh and I received a new wallet from Born Pretty so you are going to see that as well! But bye for now!
