Russia in Springtime

Russia in Springtime

          Spring is a wonderful time to visit Russia.  The Russian people are serious gardeners and cherish everything that has to do with nature.  They seem to have a particular interest in cultivating flowers and as a sideline, beekeeping is quite popular there as well.  One of the most spectacular displays of Spring are the lilacs of Russia, which reach their peak blooming period about six weeks after lilacs bloom in North America.  As you travel through this fascinating and beautiful country you will see everything from formal public gardens to the country gardens that grace private homes.  Even the lowly dandelion is treasured as a ground cover in Russia!  Here are a few of my favorite photos of Spring blossoms in the Russian Federation.
