I always thought that Golden Glows were Russian flowers. They are so common to Russian villages and small towns. You would see them grow below the windows of log houses, or along the wooden fences. That is why I was in for a big – and pleasant – surprise, when I found out that Golden Glows were native to Eastern North America. It made me feel good inside. It was like coming home. Now whichever side of the ocean I am on, the glowing suns warm my heart.
My name is Sasha (short for Alexandra) Palmer. Born and raised in Moscow, now Russia, back then USSR, I spent eight years in Prague, Czech Republic, before relocating to the US in 2008. I live in Maryland with my husband, our two kids – a girl and a boy – and our rescue mutt Ralphie.
I write, because I love it. Writing makes me happy. If every now and then my words brighten up your day, I am oh so glad!
