Mr Podlesniy

When I was young, a lot of my time was spent in the outdoors of Russia's country houses known as the dachas.
The home grown vegetable patches with some 40 plus types of tomatoes was forte of Mr Podlesniy. I remember him as his house had burned down one year, and yet he managed to carry on.
Somehow when I found this drawing by accident it brought me right back to the time I was a little girl, to the place called Chepelovo, near Chekhov, named after the great Russian writer and playwright Anton Chekhov.
