Spring colors of the Poltava battlefield

Spring has come early this year to the Poltava region. Despite the frosts promised by weather forecasters in mid-March, all the forests around Poltava were already painted with the bright colors of the first spring flowers. Poltava arboretum carefully preserves unique flowers and plants, many of which are listed in the Red Book. Located in the heart of the Poltava battlefield, it attracts many local residents as well as tourists. It is impossible not to notice that the color palette of numerous forest clearings and meadows corresponds to the colors of the national flags of Sweden and Ukraine. I think that readers of my blog will be interested to look at the photographs taken today on the field, where the future fate of Europe has been decided three hundred and eleven years ago.
