More Flowers

Tanya was out with the camera again this evening dodging rain showers.  She said post 'em so here they are.  She is pretty proud of her garden this year and I am pretty proud of her.

At least we haven't had the torrential rainfall that other parts of Ukraine have had.  Last evening we were looking at videos of cars floating down the streets in Kyiv; piling up agains an underpass and tropical storm like wind and rain with accompanying flooding in Kharkiv. A week ago Cherkassy got flooded.  We just get rain every night.  Tomorrow is supposed to be hot and no rain.  Hope so.


This picture is for Mel.  Tanya's first Calla lilies





I know what it is but can't spell it

These blooms are HUGE

  3. I love the pics! And also your caption on the cat photo. "Felled by a sudden nap attack". That's a great phrase.

  10. Tanya has some talent in the garden! Does she do any consulting? I know a garden plot in Canada that could use some help.

  11. Barb, she would be pleased to consult with you, pro bono. Just for expenses.
