Wildflowers



I love buying bunches of wildflowers from the babushki outside of the metro and at busy street corners... They gather them at their dachas and bring them into the city to make some money... They smell lovely and are so darn pretty... Unlike fancy-shmancy bouquets from regular floral shops, these always come wrapped in newspaper... (A friend gave me these yesterday in exchange for a big bag of summer hand-me-downs, so I don't have a picture from when she was buying them).

Oh! I love the florists' bouquets, but these are SO much more cheerful!

Pretty flowers - especially the blue ones.

Aren't you bringing outgrown clothes for the woman I work with?
