A young woman Norah inherited a beautiful garden from her grandmother. She loved gardening too and was very proud of her garden. One day, she saw a very beautiful plant in a catalog and wanted that for her garden. She ordered it and planted it at the base of the stonewall in her backyard. She took great care of the plant, which grew quickly and had beautiful green leaves on it.

To the neighbor's side was a nursing home for veterans, where Norah never had a chance to visit.

The Department of Veterans Affairs provides both short-term and long-term care in nursing homes to veterans who aren't sick enough to be in the hospital but are too disabled or elderly to take care of themselves.

Mental health conditions are common in the United States, and more than 1.7 million Veterans received treatment in a mental health specialty program.

The Department of Veterans Affairs offers a wide range of mental health services to Veterans.

The goal of mental health care is to support recovery and enable Veterans who experience mental health problems to live meaningful lives in their communities and achieve their full potential.

Colorful flowers have a great influence on people's mood, also a good way to soothe the disturbing mood. Red, orange, and yellow flowers will make people excited, cheer up, and enthusiastic, thereby increasing appetite and eliminating fatigue; blue flowers make people feel elegant, clean, calm, and calm; white flowers will make people feel pure, cool, and quiet; green foliage flowers will make people who use their eyes and brains for a long time feel comfortable and relaxed.

But colorful flowers failed to show up in Norah's Garden.

Months passed, but not a single flower bloomed on the tree. Vexed, Norah almost wanted to cut the tree down. At such a time, her invalid neighbor called and said , "Thank you so much for the beautiful flowers. You have no idea how much we all enjoy looking at the blooms of the vine you have planted."

Hearing this, the young girl rushes to the neighbor's side of the wall and sees the most beautiful flower in bloom. All the care she took had paid off. Only the vine crept through the crevices because of which it did not flower on her side of the wall but did generously on the other side.

解 說

年輕的諾拉繼承了祖母的美麗花園。也喜歡園藝的她,為這花園感到驕傲。 一天,她在型錄上發現一株非常美麗的植物,很希望能在自己花園看到。她訂購了種子,將它栽植在後院的石牆底部。她費盡心力照顧的這株植物,迅速生長出美麗的綠色葉子。

牆另一邊的鄰居是個退伍軍人的療養院,是諾拉從沒機會造訪的地方。

退伍軍人事務部在療養院中,提供身患重病的退伍軍人短期、長期護理,這些退伍軍人的病情不佳,因殘疾或年紀太大無法自理,卻無法住院治療。

精神健康出現狀況在美國很常見,並且有超過一百七十萬名退伍軍人,透過「精神健康專業計畫」接受治療。

退伍軍人事務部為退伍軍人提供各項精神治療服務,目標是資助復健,並嘗試讓飽受精神問題困擾的退伍軍人,在居住環境中過「有質感」的生活,並發揮自身的潛力。

五彩繽紛的花朵對人們的情緒有很大的影響,也是舒緩不安情緒的好方法。紅、橙、黃色的花朵會使人們興奮、振作,進而增加食欲、消除疲勞;藍色的花使人感到優雅乾淨、從容鎮定;白花會讓人感到純淨和安靜;綠葉花則可使長時間用眼和動腦的人,感到舒適和放鬆。

可是五顏六色的花朵,沒在諾拉的花園裡出現。

幾個月過去了,但樹上一朵花都沒開,煩躁不安的諾拉幾乎想砍掉那棵樹。這時,她的傷殘鄰居告訴她:「非常感謝妳的美麗花朵喔,妳都不知道我們有多麼喜歡看妳種的花。」

聽到這裡,年輕女孩衝向鄰居那一側的牆壁,看到最美麗的花朵盛開。她所付出的一切努力照顧,都得到回報了,只見那藤蔓蜿蜒穿過縫隙,不在諾拉花園的這一側開花,反而在牆的另外一邊,毫不保留地展現繁花錦簇。
