While we were visiting and living in Irkutsk, Russian Siberia, a very good / best of friends took us several times to visit the Irkutsk Botanic Garden of the Irkutsk State University.
Just in case you would like to re-visit two of the Posts showing the Botanic Garden, below are links back to them.
Several days ago, this friend sent us several recent photos he snapped there this month of January 2021. It is amazing that, in the heart of the Russian Siberian Winter, the Botanic Garden is still functioning.
We hope you enjoy the below photos. We certainly enjoyed them.
