Long time ago when the fields sown with grain crops were smaller, they created picturesque patterns to be admired not only by painters. Now, the vast plantations do not give any reference point for our eyes. We get bored too quickly to think a little and decide to have a better look at the leaves of grasses which secure our worldly existence. If we made a slight effort and forgot about the practical aspect of all cereals, and concentrated on their simple beauty we might experience wonder and gratitude. A great starting point for changing our perspective on wheat, rye, oat and barley. And attribute terms like great, amazing, ornamental to them. I am sure the list of "grateful" adjectives is much, much longer.
But the views have become different. That is why the slide-show presents also scenes which will soon become extinct. Just like the colourful weeds which still grow amidst wheat, corn or barley but are not allowed to. Because they are not going to be granted permission, the weeds have to use tricks in order to fool the persecutors. In a way I support their efforts, I am sorry.
The first cool signs of seasonal change permeate the air. The fall is just around the corner. What was the name of that liquid that is in close liaison with barley?
