  • Plunging into “Flowery Rivers” | The Day newspaper
    flowers give off a bitterish smell It turned out that preparations for the springtime exhibit had begun as long ago as last autumn Tulips are usually planted on the eve of frosts says Natalia Snopok chief of Kyivzelenbud s landscape design sector We planted tulip bulbs in a certain pattern and looked in the spring whether they had awakened and formed an unbroken composition We ourselves wondered when the exhibit would be opened for we totally depend on weather conditions After all organizers are satisfied with the way the flowers grew through the tulips densely cover the hills of Spivoche Pole Although there were very warm days even in March it took the tulips some time to begin to bloom There was a wide gap between night and day temperatures The tulips sprouted but the buds could not begin to set for a long time Only in the last week before the exhibit when the temperature gap was fewer than 10 degrees the tulips began to blossom right before our eyes Snopok says Besides we hesitated to the last moment about when to open the exhibit when the tulips have bloomed a little or when they run riot The exhibit has been open for a little more than a month Early middle term and late varieties of tulips were planted in the landscape park to keep the composition intact for the whole period The field is also full of photography spots and installations in the shape of eco benches Flowery Rivers also holds concerts and quests every weekend You really must find time to feast your eyes on the army of tulips Flowery Rivers will remain open until May 29 By Maria PROKOPENKO photos by Mykola TYMCHENKO The Day Rubric Time Out Issue 29 2016 Твіт Новини партнерів Recent headlines

    were mostly called Club of Russian Wives Foreign based Ukrainians are self identifying today Ukrainians no longer identify themselves as Russians This is why you can see more and more Ukrainian associations as such We want to show our viewers the way Ukrainians live in various parts of the world and cherish their culture Yes it is true that we show successful Ukrainians As a rule the people who agree to be video filmed have something to show and speak about For example we found Ms Svitlana in Mexico she is not rich but she launched a business of her own a small cozy cafe that serves Ukrainian dishes You know this business just helps her survive As for successfulness yes the people who left their country relatives and customary ways just have no other choice You must go the whole hog and do something That s why we would come across rich and even very rich Ukrainians all over the world As a rule those who have resettled are making an all out effort to achieve success O D Many ponder especially in hard times over giving everything up and leaving the country We find such people and show how hard their life is We are saying there are a lot of underwater rocks in each concrete case One should not make rash decisions and run somewhere In most cases Ukraine is better Besides in an exotic country no matter how thrilling it is you will hardly become a big businessman because in all probability you ll be ditched More often than not you cannot legally own a business and for this reason you take on locals as co owners It sometimes happens even among the heroes of our programs that people simply have their business squeezed out of them As for private life our women sometimes say almost with tears in their eyes when the camera is off Girls never go to Africa to play You must know that you are not just moving to a new place of residence it is a different civilization a different world We think differently believe in different gods and laugh at different jokes One must remember this What do we Ukrainians lack at home to be successful What are your first impressions when you come back from an expedition that may have lasted for 2 4 months D K We lack kindness and mutual respect We lack mutual help and peace of mind In this country whenever you come into a transport you see depression in people s eyes And you immediately recall people s eyes in the countries you visited the way they live and the elementary things they learned to enjoy In many exotic countries when somebody cuts in front of somebody else on the road they smile and wish success to one another In this country people run out of the car swing their arms and curse For example when we had an accident in India people came
