Geothe carried always seeds of Viola Odorata (Tuoksuorvokki in Finnish) in his pockets and sprinkled them around while his daily walking. Thus the world would come a bit nicer place to live, he thought.
So tells Eeva Ruoff in her book Tuoksuva puutarha ( in English: The Fragrant garden).
Are you able to lissen what a chanterelle has to say? To be that silent and focused?
Waldur Mikita, an Estonian writer, claims that Estonians are able. Maybe the Finns too.
In his book of Kanttarellin kuuntelemisen taito (in English: Lissening to a chanterelle) he says that real specialists are “the old grandmothers at countryside”. They have learned to know the nature by heart and they are important cultural ambassadors for their grandchildren. Great job!
