Seeking Spring

In the "Book of Songs · Xiao Ya · Chu che," The ancient Chinese described spring in this way —Spring always arrives slowly, yet wonderfully. After the wind and snow, grass and trees grow freely, birds sing in harmony, and people feel new hope amidst the harvesting of mugwort.

Hidden on Anfu Road in Shanghai, there is a space called Plant Ale., where diverse plants gather and await their next destination. Like the people of that time, the owner accompanies plants, flowers, and birds daily, feeling the flowing emotions of nature. When accustomed to the capriciousness of high-rise buildings, how do we seek spring? As the vernal equinox approaches, RUOHAN invites Plant Ale.'s two proprietors, Chuyi and Junda, to together pen their answers about Spring.
