EVS Stories: The butterfly garden – by Tejan Dahal (II)

Gardening is not my hobby, but I love flowers and of course everyone likes them. But I think there is a difference between ”like” and ”love”. Before this I have not done any type of work related to flower garden. I’m lucky that I got chance to work in a garden in Romania. This helped me learn more things about flower and herbs.

Flowers are regarded as a symbol of beauty, love and a gift of nature. Flowers are used by us to express the feelings of love and happiness because they have the power to make people happy and cheerful.


After I start passing time with flowers I start to love them and I feel more and more happy. Smelling flowers makes me relaxed.  I become happy while I’m watering them and I enjoy playing with their leaves. Flowers don’t know their own color, they just bloom and (I think) that color makes humans a bit happier. I discovered I learn more things in the garden then in the classroom.

Butterflies are some of the most beautiful and interesting creatures on Earth. A butterfly garden is an easy way to see more butterflies.

This will add to the unforgettable movements of my life.
