March 8 is a major day of global celebration for the economic, political and social achievements of women.
I learnt about this event from one of my favourite blogger Asha of "Foodies Hope" and it motivated me to make a small contribution my way..Sugarcrafted Narcissus flowers and Mimosa Blossoms.
The International Women's Day event is being hosted by lovely Zorra from "kochtopf". In her own words " Yellow" because on this day in Southern countries there is the tradition to give sprigs of bright yellow Mimosa flowers to women. The flowers are intended as a sign of respect and also an expression of solidarity with the women in their support for oppressed women worldwide.
During my recent trip to Nainital I saw beautiful Yellow Narcissus in full bloom and that was what immediately came to my mind.
I also made some mimosa flowers as they signify this day.
Thanks Zorra for hosting this lovely event.
Wishing all of you a very Happy Women's Day...
