The girl from the butterfly country made her journey to the forest below. The boy descendant of trees and his fox welcomed her to their home. He showed her the plants of the earth while she showed him the plants from the clouds. "Butterfly country plants are sustained by clouds instead of soil," she explained. One night, the boy heard a sobbing sound coming from her room. Concerned for her, he went to see if she was all right but discovered something strange. He saw her crying into her trunk of plants from butterfly country. She sobbed and sobbed, for that was the only way she could properly water her magical plants.

Story adapted from Barry Yourgrau's short story, "The Garden". Because the story was very vague, I added my own details like the butterfly country and the forest. In the original story, the girl does cry into her trunk to water them. It's very eerie and strange which is what drew me to the story in the first place.
