Hanako's Flower Shop

On a small cosy street in the building with a sign, entwined with ivy, lives a lovely girl named Hanako. She is now visiting her grandpa — a wise and kind florist. He likes flowers and teaches his sweet little granddaughter how to raise them with all the love and care they deserve. Gathering flowers together with grandpa and turning them into intricate bouquets brings Hanako real joy, but what she really is excited about is helping in her grandpa’s flower shop and watching him making people happy. They come to the flower shop happy and sad, perky and shy, young and old, dreamy and lost and grandpa always helps them. He listens to them carefully, gives himself a short nod, then leans to flowers whispering something only they can understand. With a gentle touch of a master he puts flowers together, making a bouquet and then a visitor blooms with a happy smile.

Time passes by. A small house with a sign entwined with ivy is still there on a small cosy street. A lovely girl named Hanako, who is now the owner of the flower shop, lives inside. She loves flowers and all the people in the world and you, I can tell without hesitation, will love her as well if you one day happen to visit her flower shop.
