Morning at Novodevichy Convent


We have friends from the US visiting... So we had to take them to Novodevichy!


Church services were just getting out when we arrived.


These ladies had missed church, but seemed in no hurry, happily enjoying their stroll towards one of the cathedrals...


There are tulips EVERYWHERE in Moscow now. This city spends a FORTUNE on flowers imported from Holland... One minute it's still winter, and BOOM, the next patches of sod with flowers in bloom are literally dropped into flowerbeds...


We then walked a little in the park... And our friends even tried out the girls' funky "shake your hips from side to side in order to make it go forward" scooter... Hmm... I have video...

Another beautiful girl by a Moscow landmark. Fortunately this one still look like a little girl.

Gorgeous.... I think of Moscow in the springtime as the closest thing to heaven on earth.... Oh, I know, it's NOT the same thing if you live there.... Still....

In Seattle, they do that mass planting with primroses in March (I think) and - oh! what a difference flowers can make! WELL worth the money - and think how appreciated it is by all the workers who grow the bulbs!
