I have enjoyed looking at your photos of the Nikita Botanical Garden. It must be wonderful to spend time there. I have looked at internet sites like http://nikita.russian-women.net/ and http://www.encyclopediaofukraine.com/pages/N/I/NikitaBotanicalGarden.htm They say it covers 1100 hectares with 6 kilometers of coastline and about 1000 staff ! That is very impressive. Do you have to travel far to get there or is it close to your home ? I look forward to seeing more photos. :~)

It's great to see cacti growing outside in the ground, instead of in pots.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments!
This place is my favourite one in the Garden!
Yes, Hywel, it's very unusual to see cacti and other succulents growing in the ground. But they are so healthy then!
Muddywalters, glad you liked the views of the NBG! The Garden is so big that we always spend a few days having a walk and making photos. We go there every year. I live in the East Ukraine, Donetsk and it takes us just 7 hours by car to get there. It's not too long for our country. :)
