A walk in a lavender field

Hello friends!

This year was not the best, we all know it. Early in winter I planned to visit a lot of beautiful places in nature, but that was definitely not possible because of lock down and I missed all the wild flowers of spring. Hopefully next year we will live happier times and things will go back to normal. Everything we know we can have for free, it can be taken away by night, so it’s important and necessary to became more grateful.

In a much happier note, I want to share with you some photos from one of my first road trips after lock down. I went to visit a lavender field here in Romania. It’s not like the ones you can find in Provence, but for the Romanian climate, the lavender was very well grown. Also, after so many days spent in the house, this trip was like a visit to heaven. There is not much to say about it, words can’t describe the beauty and the feeling that you have in a lavender field after so many days with no contact with nature. The smell is divine and the atmosphere is like a fairy tale, I couldn’t get enough of it.

My favorite thing about this flower is that it has a powerful meaning beside its beneficial properties that are very well known. Lavender flowers represent purity, silence, devotion serenity, grace and calmness. Also, its purple color comes with great symbolism. Purple is the color of royalty and speaks of elegance, refinement and luxury. The color purple is also associated with the crown chakra, which is the energy center associated with higher purpose and spiritual connectivity. After a walk in a lavender field, I can tell that all your ‘batteries’ are fully charged, personally I felt better mentally and spiritually. Sometimes a simple thing like a bouquet of lavender is enough to feel a bit better. I hope you are all healthy and happy.

La Vie en Rose

Hello friends! I hope you are still here. I know that it’s been a long time since my last post on this blog, but now I’m back and ready to post again more often. For those who are new here and do not know me, I will tell you a few words about myself and my blog.

My name is Adela and I am a biologist. My passion for nature started a long time ago, when I was a kid and since then never stopped. I love to spend time in the woods, hiking and enjoy nature in all its shapes. Over time, this passion and curiosity about microorganisms, plants, animals and wild life has turned into study and ongoing research. Now, I’m a biologist in love with everything that this world can give us. Biology is not just a science, it’s everything that surrounds us and defines us as living beings. The study of life is the most amazing thing for me to do and because I love it so much I decided to share with you what I know or what I’m about to learn. This was the start of my blog and the goal was to write interesting articles and make as many photos as I can, to show you the beauty of nature and the mysteries of wild life.

Now, things are changed and I want to create something else. Beside biology, I’m very passionate about painting and art in general, also I love to study history, to read, travel and cook. Because in the past some of you asked me to create articles in personal manner, not just from my biologist point of view, I decided to reorganize my blog and transform it into a journal. So, I invite you here, once in a while, to read about nature curiosities, art, history, recipes and many more.

I now that everyone got through some difficult times in the past few months, I’m very conscious about the problems that this world is facing right now, but I don’t want to talk about this. On my page you will never find articles about personal opinions on politics, religion or social issues. All I want is to create a media platform where everyone can relax and see the beauty of this world not the dark side of it. I personally need a place where I can be myself and where I can write about everything that goes through my mind. So, I imagine this blog as a cozy living room where we can drink a cup of tea or coffee and talk about interesting subjects. I hope you will follow me on this new journey!

I named the new version of this blog ‘La Vie en Rose’ because no matter what, we can still see the light and the ‘life in pink’!!! Also, as a celebration of reopening the blog I will show you some photos with roses from my garden.

See you soon!
