Once upon a time, when there was no one but The Lord, Amoo Norooz with fawn-colored beard, a felt hat, and a shawl tied on his waist, came down from the mountain, walking with stick, and moved towards the garden. Upon Amoo Norooz’s arrival, the trees and flowers awakened, trees blossomed and bushes bloomed. Every corner was full of cherry, apricot, peach and sour cherry blossoms, with anemone, lotus, narcissus, rose and evergreen flowers. The owner of the garden was a white-haired granny who was eager to see Amoo Norooz. She loved Amoo Norooz and thus used to work hard on the last day of winter so she could serve her guests when the new year stroke. This year, granny woke up early as before, cleaned up the room, terrace and garden; and swept them with broom. She brought her prettiest carpet and spread it on the terrace.
