Edelweiss, Edelweiss

Edelweiss, Edelweiss
Every morning you greet me
Small and white, clean and bright
You look happy to meet me
Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow
Bloom and grow forever
Edelweiss, Edelweiss
Bless my homeland forever

From the Sound of Music

I remembered this song when I was in Geneva, we were on the hunt for a restaurant that serves chocolat fondue, and after wandering around for a while, we found this very swiss restaurant, in Edelweiss Hotel. It is the equivalent of Felfela in Egypt, combining all the stereotypes that tourists imagine of Switzerland. (Food is good, prices are reasonable, recommended)

The entertainer played this song, and I instantly remembered that scene in The Sound of Music. I kept humming it all night, and ultimately remembered the last verse! 🙂

It’s such a lovely song. It’s such a lovely flower.


One response to “Edelweiss, Edelweiss

  1. A couple of years ago I went to Salzburg Austria with my sister, we passed by the actual house they used in the movie (where I found out that it was all shot inside studios in Holywood, but they used the landscape for a background). It was a very nice day, and we sang that song all day long! I bought a pin of an edelweiss and the word Salzburg, but I did not see the actual flower before.. thanx for sharing Nousha 🙂
