August (I) Herăstrău Park

              Despre Luna August în căteva cuvinte alese şi o scurtă plimbare prin Parcul Herăstrău... / Some Info about August Month... some excerpts... and a short walk on the alleys of Herăstrău Park!

                    “Pînă în anul 8 înainte de era noastră, luna aceasta se chema sextilis, adică a şasea (numărătoarea începea de la 1 martie). În anul acela a fost botezată augustus, În onoarea lui Octavian, care primise titlul de Augustus, adică “venerabilul”.

                                 Articol de Academician Alexandru Graur şi Publicat în “Tempo” la 24.VII.1939

"Mai sunt încă roze — mai sunt,
Și tot parfumate și ele
Așa cum au fost și acele
Când ceru-l credeam pe pământ..."

Extras din Rondelul Rozelor de August de Alexandru Macedonski


                    “Untill 8 BC – the month was named sextilis - which it means the sixth one (the numbering was started at march 1st). In this year was baptized augustus in honor of Octavian - who received the title of Augustus and wich it means “ a venerable one”.  
 ( N.b. A simple english version - my own version)

And now just some random photos from around Herăstrău Park, Bucharest.
 Please enjoy and have a nice august day!
