An important plant
Some people think that the most important plant to themselves is cosmos. However, for me, the most important plant is rose for the following reasons.
First of all, rose brings my family happiness. To take an example, when I was 26 years old, I got married. One day, I bought a flower because the day was my wife’s birthday. When I bought a flower for her, I could not decided which flower I should bought. Therefore, I asked for help from a shopper. After I explained the reason why I bought a flower and my wife’s favor. He calmly gave me some advices and he choose rose and explained the reason why he thought I should bought rose. Rose is very beautiful and the smell is fruitful. Thus, I bought rose and gave it to my wife. She was surprised and she looked so happy because she loved rose very much. Finally, we could spend wonderful time. As the example above shows, rose makes my family happy.
Second, rose makes me relaxed. To take an example, when I was a freshman in ABC University, a national university in Japan, in 2007, my friends held my birthday party. I was very surprised and one of my friends gave me rose as a birthday present. I had never been given rose in my life. At that time, I acknowledged that rose has nice smell for the first time in my life and made me relaxed. After that, since rose makes me relaxed, I usually put rose in my room. As the example mentioned illustrates, rose makes me relaxed.
In conclusion, the most important plant to me is rose.
