A friend came to my house as a guest. When I entered the room, I saw a variety of potted plants everywhere in the living room and balcony. At a glance, it was full of green, and there were a few flowers embellished there. The friend was amazed. She said that I did not expect my lover to be a life-loving person. I ask why? She said that only those who are sensitive, emotional, and poetic will love China, grow flowers, raise flowers, and appreciate flowers. I smiled at him, I planted those flowers. She was surprised, it was not easy for a big man to have this leisure and quiet.
In fact, I have a special liking for flowering because of my mother's influence. The mother was born with a love for flowers and plants, and she had a gentle personality. She did everything meticulously. Even in the poor years of the past, she did not forget to be beautiful. There is an open space in the yard of my hometown. My grandmother and my father both plan to grow vegetables, but my mother insists on using half of the flowers to grow flowers. Roses, hollyhocks, mallows, balsam, and cacti are all common flower species. Mother But cultivate them carefully.
Whenever spring flowers bloom, her mother's face is always full of smiles. No matter how busy the farming and housework is, she does not forget to cook her own small garden. Sprinkle flower seeds, cultivate the soil, clean up the sundries, weeds, and water, quietly expecting the flowers to germinate and the flowers to turn green. In the season when flowers bloom, the garden is always full of colorful flowers, including purple pink impatiens, red roses, pale yellow hollyhocks, butterflies, and bees flying among them, competing for fun. The not-so-spacious courtyard is always filled with a faint floral scent. The garden on that side adds infinite beauty to the childhood home, brings richness to the barren spiritual world of the past, and leaves many real and warmth to the family. Memories.
After moving into the family, I just moved to the city to live there, and I always remembered the beauty that my mother created. So my wife and I bought back more than a dozen potted plants from the flower market, including fortune trees, spider plants, green dills, asparagus, aloe, jasmine, evergreen, orchids, prickly pears, etc., all placed on the balcony and living room. , I feel immersed in it a lot better. Every day I water them, bask in the sun, even fertilize, spray nutrient solution, and imagine the warm moment when they bloom their first flower.
However, the good times are not long. After more than a month, I found that some flowers are still glowing green, while some branches and leaves are gradually yellowing, shrinking, and they lose their vital signs completely. The first one died was the bamboo, then Jasmine died, and most of the leaves of the fortune tree fell. Looking at the listless flowers, I realized that it was not as easy as I thought. Later, my mother told me that each flower has its own different habits and different methods of conservation. The indoor sunlight is limited, and the tap water for watering the flowers is not as rich as the natural rainwater as natural rain. Some of the potted soil is also lacking in nutrition, and some flowers themselves It is more delicate and requires more careful care. So I went to the flower market again to learn more about the habits and planting methods of various flowers. I also checked some materials. After many attempts, I finally learned how to effectively mix the soil, sunlight, water, and nutrients to ensure the health of the flowers. Grow.
Flowers, like people, have different tempers. Some flowers like water, some flowers like drought, some flowers need plenty of sunshine, and some flowers like shade. Some flowers are delicate and delicate and need to be carefully cared for, but some flowers cannot be taken care of too much. Frequent fertilization, watering, and loosening the soil will affect its growth. Some flowers are always energetic, while others have to go from prosperity to decay to prosperity. Flowers must be able to withstand loneliness, keep quiet, and consume time. Some flowers will bloom in just a few days, and some flowers will be full of beauty and beauty, but some flowers will take several years of growth to brew before a small flower will bloom .
I also thought that raising flowers and writing submissions also had something in common. Both required interest and hard work, carefully cultivated, and waited for the flowers to bloom. Writing is about expressing feelings, examining life, and ruminating on yourself. A well-written article can make you feel comfortable even if no one shares it. The same is true for flower-growing. You don't have to rush to achieve success, you don't have to worry about it. Surprises and harvested flowers often open up casually.
In the spring season, I went to the flower market and picked a few pots. Now I have the ability and methods to thrive on every flower. Flowers and flowers have become an indispensable part of life. In my spare time, I would sit quietly on the balcony, watch the traffic flow outside the window, and walk in a hurry, and then appreciate the potted plants growing peacefully, green leaves, tender twigs, and pink flowers. The hustle and bustle outside the window seems to have nothing to do with me. All I have is comfortable leisure and endless reverie, so I can enjoy such quiet time and the green of life.
I sincerely hope that every seed I plant and every seedling I plant will be brilliant and fragrant with my dream of life in the near future.
