Up in the Mountains/ В горы!

On the way home we took a detour to the upper lands in the Crimea, as I knew some precious leaves were waiting there to be picked and stored for the further dye baths. На обратном пути мы свернули с маршрута, чтобы подняться в горы, где воздух чист и прозрачен, а зеленые луга и лесные массивы богаты ценными для крашения растениями  горы01

Just a brief visit to this fantastic area refreshes my mind and provides a rich ground for new ideas. Tranquil and spectacular, these mountains stood tall for centuries, witnessed of times change, and now hoard their wisdom and treasures. Даже непродолжительное время, проведенное здесь, в значительной степени освежает воображение и создает почву для неожиданных идей. Спокойные и величественные, эти горы стояли свидетелями перемен времен и по сей день молчаливо хранят свои истории.горы02горы03

Roads are so captivating to me. But the mountain roads wield some special power over my imagination. Дороги меня завораживают. А горные дороги безусловно обладают особой силой воздействия. горы05

The precious plants were finally found at some highest points of the route. Why it was no surprise to me? Наконец-то, вот они – на самой верхней точке пути наконец-то нашлись!  горы06горы07горы08горы09

Good garden cutters, a few dedicated plastic boxes and in an hour or so we’re heading back down West. Надежный садовый секатор, пара пластиковых ящиков – и примерно через час мы уже едем в западном направлении.горы10

Bye, bye, Mountains! Hello my sweet Flat Land! I’ve been so missing your endless horizon line and unrenderable flavour of the Stepp weeds. Прощайте, высокие горы! Привет вам, милые сердцу равнины! Как я соскучилась по бесконечности горизонта и аромату степных трав.домой01домой02листопад06
