Paper flower truss – Model 2
For me, perhaps my dear home is the most beautiful, there will be no other beautiful scene comparable. That place is beautiful because of the full love of the members, because of the memories filled with life. My house-home is still beautiful by skillful decoration. In particular, the bougainvillea has highlighted the simple and simple beauty of the house in the peaceful and quiet countryside.
The bougainvillea is planted at the entrance. Listening to my brother’s story, he planted it with his own hands. Up to now, the tree is nearly ten years old. The tree grows luxuriantly covering a corner of the yard, about 5 to 6 meters high. My brother built a large trellis for the tree to climb, creating shade for a large yard. Every summer afternoon, under the shade of bougainvillea, we children play together happily.
Plant roots penetrate deep into the ground, sucking up nutrients to feed the plant. The bougainvillea is not too big, just the size of an adult’s wrist. It put on a brown shirt, not rough but quite smooth. Branches keep growing and spreading along the trellis, and then go out in all directions to catch the sun and the wind. The higher you go, the smaller the branches become, gradually turning crimson. There grow many sharp thorns. It is like an effective weapon to protect the beauty of a luxurious flower. The leaves of confetti grow luxuriantly. It is not as big as the leaves of the eagle, the leaves of the jackfruit, but as small as the cool green heart shape. On the background of green leaves full of life is a carpet of confetti so beautiful. My house bougainvillea has two types: white and pink. Paper petals are so thin that you can see through them. Each confetti consists of three petals facing each other to hide the brilliant yellow pistil. The white confetti is pure white like beautiful little lanterns in the middle of the vast blue. The pink flowers are very harmonious with the white color, a feminine beauty. Every time there is a breeze, some flowers will leave their branches and gently follow the gentle breeze to land on the ground.
In order for the tree to be always green, it is necessary to take care of human hands. Every afternoon, I and my grandfather carry water to water the plants. Occasionally, add fertilizer to the plant to have enough nutrients. Me and everyone in the family really appreciate and like the bougainvillea. That’s why I always tell myself that I will take good care of it so that the bougainvillea will forever adorn the house.

Thien li flower has 5 petals like five stars arranged evenly spread around the beautiful calyx like a small green and blue jade bell; pale yellow pistil.

In the summer, sitting under the celestial rig is very cool. On autumn nights, sitting under the celestial rig to watch the moon, it’s great. The moonlight filtered through the brilliant green leaves. My mother still sent me to bring water to wash the rice to water the root of the heavenly tree. At the end of the year, my father changed the soil, applied manure, and fertilized three natural plants with nitrogen. It has been over 30 years, but the family’s natural rig is still lush and green.
At the end of autumn, the season of natural flowers gradually thins out. The swarm of bees coming to suck the pistil and looking for nectar is also absent. Occasionally, one or two black gourd bees would be seen bobbing back and forth. But the celestial rig is still green. For her, for her mother, the rig of heaven is nostalgia and waiting. For me, the Thien Ly rig is a piece of heaven that cools the soul and a beautiful little house filled with the scent of flowers. This year, spring comes early. Spring has come. The season of heavenly flowers offers incense again.

From the base of the tree upwards, small branches race to grow, wrapping each bamboo stick on the truss like a race with no end. So, on the truss, every bamboo stick is full of tightly wrapped branches.
Apricot leaves bloom luxuriantly, jostling for sunlight, filling the gaps on the trellis. Each leaf is both small and large, closely related to each other, forming large trees swaying in the wind.

Flowers bloom for about two or three days and then begin to fade to bear fruit. When the flowers form small Gac fruit, the fruit is green, the spines are long and thick.
Gradually when the fruit is large, the green color is darker, the spines are also thin and hard. When the fruit is old and ripe, gac has a beautiful, bright red color. The gac rig at my grandparents’ house was very wrong with each gac fruit hanging down the rig like little pigs lying in the cool air.
The gac tree provides both shade and fruit for food processing. Under that lush green gac rig, my grandfather set up a small table and chair, where he used to sit and play chess. I also love to eat Gac sticky rice made by my grandmother. Bright red sticky rice, shiny and fragrant.

Although it is in a hidden corner, it is still easy for me to recognize this fruit because they do not grow straight or crawl on the ground like other trees that climb into a trellis. In order to create a rectangular house for pumpkins to live and grow up freely, my uncle had to buy bamboo and bamboo slats to make a sturdy frame with interconnected cells. Then, from a small root, the pumpkin tree clings to the bamboo stick and grows.
The trunk of the squash plant is also slender, about the size of a finger, but very supple and resilient. They follow the bamboo stick, crawling everywhere, with the tops reaching up to the sky as if they want to receive the essence of heaven and earth.

Grapes are also known to be a berry taken from vines of the grape genus. And I have also observed in my vineyard that the grapes grow in clusters, which is also very pleasing to the eye with clusters of more than 100 fruits. , but my father said that there are actually many vineyards with clusters of up to 300 more.

Of all the fruit trees, grapes are my favorite. And I was fortunate to have the opportunity to go to my friend Huong’s house in Ninh Thuan and also see the vine with my own eyes, I was also very happy. Because usually the vines I can only watch TV and because living in the city, it is very difficult to get land to plant trees.
In Huong’s house in the countryside, having a vine of grapes is also very wrong. Each bunch is very big and also a lot of fruit. I have also seen that there are vines that are all neat, thousands of bunches of succulent grapes hanging. And I can see that the vine itself can be as big as a big toe, as big as an adult’s wrist, and brown and black. Each type of grape gives a different flavor, some of which are rich in fruit and some that are sweet to the neck. And grapes are also very popular because it also provides a lot of vitamins necessary for the human body. I also seem to have seen that the vine itself can be up to three or forty meters long. Another feature is that the grape leaves are larger than the palm of the hand, with three to fifty teeth. And those noses are as sharp as the blue silk fan. Grapes are also egg-shaped with long fruit, it looks like a small round, containing a lot of water inside. More specifically, it is the grapes that when ripe, the skin is red, purple, milky white, covered with a layer of wax powder and looks very attractive. If you’re observant, you’ll know which grapes are fresh, watery, small, fragrant, and sweet. In fact, there are grapes as big as eggplants.
Grapes today are also used to eat fresh, to make wine. Grapes are also grown a lot in Ninh Thuan and that is also the hometown of Huong em.

From a distance, the bougainvillea looks like a colorful carpet. Plant roots go deep into the ground. It is a very strange thing that after a period of leaves, people have to make the land more barren because the more barren the land is, the more flowers the paper tree will have.
The large, plain brown bougainvillea stump looks rough and sturdy. From the base of the tree, slender branches curving gracefully on the roof of the gate. Paper branches have many sharp thorns, it is these thorns that make this plant look soft but not weak.

The gourd climbs very quickly, just a few days ago it was just a few young tree tops clinging to bamboo branches to have shelter, but now it has grown, luxuriant branches and many fragrant fruits.

The tree produces fruit, the gourd is large, long and almost as long as a pumpkin, but its green color is lighter, like azure color. Every time I come home from school, I have a bowl of gourd soup cooked with shrimp whiskers, and I realize how beautiful my hometown is:

My father’s gac truss frame is meticulously made, the truss is made of bamboo five meters long and two meters wide. Just the other day, the Gac tree seemed to be tiny. Only a few days later, the top of the gac tree seemed to have crawled all over the rig. Western Gac seems to be larger than other vines of the same type such as melon or gourd, etc. The new Gac tree this afternoon was only about five centimeters long, but tomorrow morning the hand was ten years long and tightly wrapped in the truss. I think it’s strange to see it. Turning back and forth just a short time, I can see that soon a bright green color has covered the surface of the truss.
When the gac tree has also climbed all over the truss, this time the gac tree has also begun to flower. Gac flowers have a white moon color as if inviting bees and butterflies to come and suck nectar. Then the tiny gac fruit sprouted out as if to say hello to a new day. Gac fruit is small at first just like a lemon and it is firmly wrapped. Gac fruit in my house is very wrong and everyone likes to look at it, but Gac fruit is so round. Gac fruit outside has countless sharp thorns, if anyone is unfortunate enough to touch it, it will hurt their hands, picking Gac also needs to be careful. When gac is ripe, it can be left for a long time and people often use gac to cook sticky rice. Gac sticky rice is known as one of the traditional sticky rice of our nation. And the taste is delicious and has a bright red color like bringing good luck if we cook Gac sticky rice to burn incense
I really like my house Gac tree and sometimes I go to the garden with my father to cultivate the soil as well as catch pests to make the tree more green and give more ripe and fragrant fruit.
Mother-grown cucumber shoes
My mother made a cucumber trellis out of four-meter-long bamboo sticks, the truss frame was arranged in the shape of an A. Just a few days ago, the cucumber plants were still tiny, under my mother’s care, they grew as fast as day by day. . After only a month, the whole cucumber rig was green and the garden was beautiful with beautiful leaves to catch the wind.
I love watching my cucumber rig in the early morning, the tassels and leaves fluttering in the morning, the glittering dew drops on the leaves like jewels. The whole garden in the morning seemed to glow in the sun, maybe thanks to that, the cucumber plants changed every day. Soon a yellow color was intertwined with a green color.
The tiny bright yellow cucumber flowers attract small bees and fluttering butterflies. The number of flowers is gradually increasing on the leaves, the whole melon is now full of yellow petals. The first tiny melons burst out to welcome the new day.
They gradually grew to the size of a finger, then to the size of a green banana, the size of a straight western banana that my mother began to harvest. Each fruit is straight, the fruit is green with small white stripes, they sometimes hang all over the rig. Every morning, I wake up very early to go to the garden to help my mother catch worms and pick melons to eat.
My home’s melon shoes are very wrong, my mother told me to bring them to relatives and neighbors. Everyone compliments that my melon is both sweet and crispy. I really like my melon rig, I will work hard to take good care of them so that the melon is always fruitful and free from pests.
The loofah is also a childhood memory – Model 2
Loofah is a small but very fragrant and delicious melon. Therefore, the melon often attracts butterflies and bees. If not carefully protected, the beautiful little melons will be easily stinged and damaged by bees. When I was a child, my mother used to say a saying: good weather in the sun, good in the rain.
In the early summer days, my father often took the seeds of the oldest melons from previous years and planted them in soft, moist soil so that they could grow up green sprouts to grow quickly. Dad also took small pieces of bamboo, fenced around the place where the loofah was planted to prevent chickens digging in the ground or mischievous dogs running through, which would damage the young trees.
Through the caring hands of their father, the small melon trees quickly emerge from the ground and reach out to receive the first sunlight. The time they grow is also very fast compared to other plants. Soon, the small loofah began to grow long green tassels that gradually spread to the branches near it.
During this time, my father often added a trellis of loofah at the top so that the spools could be attached and developed. The loofah is as tall as his father, planted at the entrance to the garden. Dad made four iron bars on the four sides like four very strong pillars. Above there are bamboo branches that are carefully separated and arranged into small squares for the melons to climb.
Day by day, the loofah branches were green with strong tassels clinging to the truss. Above, the flowers began to bloom, bright yellow like the sun and the fragrance attracted honey bees and butterflies to come here to suck nectar and fly.
Just a few days after the flower blooms, young fruits begin to emerge from the stigma. Those young fruits grow up very quickly, my friends. My mother also advised me that when looking at melons, don’t point or touch them because that will make melons shrivel from a young age and can’t be successful. So, at times like that, I can only look at them from an angle and eagerly wait for the melons to become big and long fruits.
When small, the melon still has brown flower residues underneath. After that, those flower remnants are gone, they begin to grow larger and longer. Outside the shell is a small and fluffy coat as if they were impervious to water. This is the time when I have to protect the melons the most because if they are stung by bees, they will all be damaged and cannot be eaten.
As the melons grow, the green color turns darker and can be cut down to eat. If you leave the loofah on the tree for too long, they will be old and dry, the skin is thick and no longer edible, you can only wash the dishes with the loofah and dry the seeds for future years.
Watermelon is a fruit with many uses. Not only can it be fried and cooked with meat, but the melon is also added to crab soup with jute vegetables and spinach. It also carries the love of parents for us, so for me, the melon tree is also a beautiful memory of childhood.
