Easter Palms From Vilnius

Warsaw, Poland

On this outdoor mini market you can see Polish palms brought to Warsaw from Vilnius region (Lithuania) where still many Poles live (over 18% in Vilnius itself).
They are carefully constructed from dry flowers (usually straw flowers called in Polish niesmiertelnik which means "immortal") as well as from different corn ears.

The palms....they have such meaning to me. Maybe that's why I love them so. Beautiful way that they are displayed. I wish we had things like that here. So much of our country has fallen away from God. Scares me. I love the light in this and the composition. Beautifully displayed and captured!:)
