Maralnik bloom- how a bright explosion of emotions awakens eternally sleeping mountains. It would seem that the day before, nothing portends a change. In the snowy months, thaw days quietly creep in. Then, step by step, spring takes away space from winter, liberates the cities and plains of the region, then the rivers, foothills. The snows recede, and suddenly, swiftly, as can only be in the mountains, it flares up in a lilac-pink color - a maral.
Maralnik flowers, bright, glowing like youth. They cover huge spaces, they fill everything around. It seems the bloom will last forever. But nature gave them only a few days:from late April to early May... Soon, youth returns the rights to the eternal owner of the taiga mountains - conifers.
