Flourishing Flowers, Flowering Fountains

Flowers and Fountains! Finally. FINALLY! F-I-N-A-L-L-Y!!! When fountains flower and flowers flourish then Lazurus-Spring has finally chased the Queen of Winter from her Siberian throne. Pink Rhododendron have burst into the sleeping grey forest, jolting a sleeping winter heart into beating-beating blood red LIFE! Blazing blossoms of fuchsia shatter the Siberian paradigm and make the quiet of the forest so loud. And the fountains! A ballet of water washes through the souls of city dwellers. Under protection of a fountain, toddlers squeal at new sensations, children splash, skate, gawk, and dash. Youth cuddle, parents chat and tend the young ones, and the elderly rest, enjoying the water show, complete with music and light. Fountains create refuges in the rush of Russian cities. Fountains and flowers transform Siberia!

  1. I’ve been gone so long, I can’t tell which city the fountains are in! Whichever it is, it’s changed a lot! But the flowers haven’t. I never knew their name, but I found them to be a perfect symbol of beauty. Their delicate color meant I often didn’t see them until I was on top of them. And after noticing one bush, the whole wood seemed to explode with them!
