This lady in her country-style clothes has been selling flowers at the Khreshchatyk metro station for some two weeks already. Yesterday I saw her again – standing with a bunch of flowers. She held the flowers all the time looking around. I knew why. She was trying to keep clear of a patrolling policeman: he could take away all her flowers.

In the picture which I took today the flower woman is selling two bouquets.  Has she grown more courageous? Or has she given a couple of hryvnias to the policeman “not to be noticed”? This way or the other but, as we see, she has become more confident, her business has expanded, and she may even have a vision for it. Had she a longer life to live, she might open a flower shop at this place and later develop it into a huge flower store named “Flower Empire” ( for some inexplicable reason Ukrainian businessmen like the word “empire”: Auto Empire, Empire of Taste, etc).  However…

Hasn’t she come into business too late?
