Plants don’t mind which country they grow in

‘… up here things were busy growing, effortless and unchallenged. They didn’t have to make a life for themselves out of sweat and tears and bricks and plaster. Life just happened to them here on this mountain, on Mangup-Kalye, and no one minded, no one told them they had no right to it. It would be nice to be a plant. You just put down roots and got on with growing and flowering and having seeds and then dying again until next year.’
