Once upon a time, there was an old man who loved flowers.
Every early morning, he cleaned the garden and watered all of woods and grasses.
When he found flowers beginning to bloom, he bowed to flowers and offered liquor.
When it’s pouring rain or blowing hard,he woke up even midnight and kept an eye on the garden.
hen he found a branch which is going to break off, he splinted it with a bamboo.
He swept up the fallen petals, rinsed one of each,
One day, violent men passed by the old man’s house.
Violent men knocked the door.
However, violent men didn’t see any flowers and began to drink.
One of them was drunk and about to pick the branch of peonies.
‘Shut up! Look at this!’
When he turned around, a beautiful flower nymph was standing there.
‘You don’t have to be so sorry.I’ll make them back to the original.’
He saw the flowers, they turned back to the same before without knowing when.Every flower bloomed much more beautiful than before.
Afterwards, it was said that the violent men had a disease that they were unable to move arms and legs.
