There is a young tree in a corner of a spacious garden. She is a delight to behold and her gentle fragrance can calm the soul.
Despite the fact that she is being praised by neighbors, the young tree is nevertheless envious. She is envious of Rosa's red blossoms, Santan's cluster of flowers, the proliferation of Gumamela's yellow buds when it is abloom with flowers. The time comes when the young tree bears flowers of her won - but she remains envious.
Through this story, we will learn that instead of being envious, we can recognize and appreciate our own attributes.
