She had worked so hard on her garden & the pretty and colourful flowers were the reward of her effort.
That day when she woke up, and like always when she went to her garden to greet her plants & flowers, she was shocked to see that a thief had picked all her flowers...
There was not a single flower in her garden!
No time to grieve as it was Holi* and her family and friends fed her sweets, put colours on her and hugged her saying "HAPPY HOLI!"
As her eyes wondered to one patch of her garden, she let out a cry of joy seeing that her Mushroom-cultivation had been successful!

She philosophized- "Mushrooms have no colour, yet they are prized by their lovers! They add variety, taste and meaning."
Just because her flowers had been stolen didn't mean that her life was not a life full of colours...
No thief could steal her hope, ideas and enthusiasm, and soon even her garden would regain its glory and be full of colour!
Note- *Holi - Festival of colours celebrated annually during Spring in India. These days, Holi is celebrated all over the world.
Happy Holi everyone! Hope our lives be always full of colour!
