Spaska Vangelova About Baba Vanga
Spaska Vangelova has been taking care of Baba Vanga’s flowers.
I remember Baba Vanga since I was a child. When she and her husband arrived in Petrich, she became popular within months. I must have been 5-6 year old, but I still remember how hundreds of people lined up every day in front of her house. Me and the rest of the kids from the neighbourhood were often playing nearby her house, as she would often go out and give us candies and chocolate. To some extent Baba Vanga was a relative of mine. I became an orphan at the age of one. The man that have adopted me, was the best man at Baba Vanga’s wedding. So I often called her godmother.
When I was 14 Baba Vanga advised me to apply for a work at the grocery store that was right across her house. She told me that I both will earn money, and will be close to her to help her when she needed me. This is what happened – I got the job at the store, and was visiting her almost every day. I would sweep her yard, water the flowers, wash the pathways, etc. Since I had studied gardening, Baba Vanga allowed only me to take care of her garden – both in Rupite and in Petrich. I still remember her last words before she passed away:”Spaska, please don’t leave my garden when I pass away.”
She really loved her flowers from the bottom of her heart.
