Yu Wen took the shuttle bus to the market that weekend. She heard a lady was talking with someone at the back seats.
“Isn’t it strange? The Azaleas that I planted in my garden since last year were just blossomed couple days ago. They were gone. I wonder who did it?”
Suddenly Yu Wen remembered what had happened until now. Bashfully she turned around and said to that lady: ” I’m so sorry, It was I who picked them.” She confessed: ” It was because I wanted to try if I can crochet some Azaleas. I stood in your yard looked at them for a while. But I couldn’t get the detail. I meant to ask you but you were not home. I was going to let you know later, but I was too involved with crocheting and forgot all about it. Please forgive me!”
The neighbor knew how skillful Yu Wen was but she didn’t know that Yu Wen could crochet three-dimensional flower. She wanted to see them eagerly. Yu Wen invited her and some other ladies to her home to see the flowers. In addition to praise Yu Wen’s work, they suggested if Yu Wen would crochet some leaves along with flower stalk. Place then in a vase. They would look more beautiful. Yu Wen agreed that fantastic idea!
Therefore Yu Wen crocheted some pink and yellow Azaleas. With different sizes of wire she crocheted leaves and put them on the the stalks. There were three bouquets of Azaleas; red, yellow and pink, placed in vase.
To show her apology Yu Wen made a rose corsage for the lady who lost her fresh Azaleas.
From then Yu Wen crocheted many other different flowers.
