Now begins the painstaking work of landscapers - you need to carefully plant the seedlings. And then another miracle arises. The city every year becomes more beautiful and more comfortable. In winter, some figures are decorated with electric illumination, and, dressed in such a sparkling fur coat, flower friends are waiting for next spring.
