It’s June now. A variety of flowers will be in full blossom.
When you realize that it is June, what flower comes first to your mind?
For me, it is a rose. That’s not because of my personal experience or memory, but because of education. As I learned in class that roses bloom in June, I had to memorize it for a test.
In fact, it was the morning glories that I had seen most at this time of a year. Morning glory were very common in Korea when I was young. Their vines crawled up walls or wooden lattice supports of almost every house. But I have heard that it is very hard to find them nowadays. Probably, they might have been replaced by other flowers which are more elegant and beautiful. Truly, it was the morning glories that I saw most in June when I was young.
The reality I have experienced may not be the same as the feeling which I have now.
There may be differences between my words and my actions.
However, there are common things among morning glories, roses and June. They all certainly represent beauty and freshness (youthfulness).
I wish that you will enjoy this June with thoughts of beauty and youthfulness.
