We, the lavender fields, bounded by mountains and green trees on one side were once cultivated by an estate owner with a good intention of escaping from the residues of the industrial revolution, bloomed to serve as visual treats to visitors, also spreading our aroma to lands around.
However, as generations passed, our lifestyle got changed just like yours, wherein we are plucked as buds even before we bloom so as to retain the colour, fragrance, and freshness longer.
Instead of helping the tourism industry bloom by attracting people from various parts of the world to see us bloom, we travel places across the globe to visit people, after being traded as bouquets or bottled as fragranced perfumes in olfaction industry, defeating the purpose of our birth.
