Happy Women's Day!

Congratulations on *The 8th of March!* Today is international Women's Day, a major deal - now there's an understatement - here in Russia and across the former USSR. Here are quick links to related stories and pictures posted here in recent years.

Thought you might enjoy a quick visit to the florists' section of the nearby outdoor market. This was taken Friday the 5th, three days before the actual holiday! Happy holiday dear friends and sisters!

Good job, Eileen! Beautiful flowers!

Very pleasant! Thank you so much!

Oh, thank you so much, Terri and Carisse! Glad you enjoyed a taste of *8th of March!* When I get to be right here in Rostov for the 8th of March, that's reason to rejoice in advance of the holiday! Say, you might enjoy a look at home the florist area of the market Usually looks. Just posted a photo of that on Twitter (which feeds into this blog, right-hand side). Happy holiday week to you!
