Background: This is how flax blooms. It has often been compared with the eyes of Russian girls. No historian can exactly say when flax has begun to be grown in Russia. Russian tradesmen sold it to many countries. Together with Russian furs, honey and lumber flax brought great profits to the treasure. For hundreds of years flax clothed the families of Russian peasants. That is why Russians love flax. At present flax is move at large factories and not in small peasant huts. Fashionable women change from hoop-skirts to mini, form mini to maxi but fashion for linen fabrics never fades. Springtime is lovely on the Volga, when fields come to life. Many songs are written about flax. This amateur group, which was born in the most flax-growing Kalinin District of Russia is called "Lenok" (Flaxen). The members of the group not only sing about falx, they grow and harvest it. It is hard to imagine Russia without white-trunked birch trees. It is just as hard to imagine Russia without wide fields of blue flax.
