Rearranging the garden in early spring this year, I removed a group of overgrown plants in the middle of the upper garden. The pointed leaves were so thickly dense around one another that their full vitality looked rather ugly and disorderly.

Cutting the roots buried in the earth halfway, I noticed they were tightly tangled and deep. I didn't feel like digging out whole bunches of roots from the very bottom.

After several months, new sprouts began to come up here and there, again and again, in the same place, and nowadays, I notice quite brand new leaves coming up and up continually. Because they are small now, they still look fresh and beautiful. So I just let them grow as they are.

Even though I take time to root out the weeds growing here and there on the paths or in the gardens whenever I can, the weeds grow........
