When I was little, I barely had a chance to live in nature. It was a very normal situation for me that I could only learn how to grow rice by textbook.
I love flowers and smiles that can change plain and dry space into a colorful and also calming place.
It has been interesting to watch and appreciate the arts after studying the history and culture of flower arrangements.
By learning basic theories of sophisticated designs, the idea of “expressing” elegance in the nature has begun to seem feasible to me, a very clumsy person.
The presence of hostas, ferns or bunny tail grasses on the streets, in the wind, often catch my eye.
I also started going out to the mountains.
In a cold winter, the new growth makes me anticipate spring.
Peaceful and steady looking branches with nuts left from autumn, or ivy surrounding them, make me feel happy and excited.
I would like to plant the seeds of brightness and joy fulness with everyone I meet and share the moment of being touched by flowers.
