The Memorial Monument was a extremely new addition to Canterlot. Constructed by child prodigy Elegance Design pre-cutie mark, the testament to the ponies fallen in war. Elegance was surprised that such a thing hadn't been thought of before, and was shocked to find that these ponies were not given the respect they deserved. So she had scribbled something up, gave it to her parents, and the rest was history.

It was...a nice place to be, Elegance thought, as she looked across the red poppy garden. It was designed for contemplation, for meditation, which was what she was doing now. Far away from her troubles, she closed her eyes and let her mind think of nothing.

Amaryllis Cerise was in a pickle, to say the least. Slightly flustered, the florist was currently trotting at a brisk pace down main street, trying to retrace her movements earlier in the day. "Now let's see... I went down this way, before taking a left. Or was it a right? It was a right." she mumbled to herself, scanning her memory caches for the path she had taken.

Coming upon a dead end, she cursed under her breath before turning around and going back, choosing to take a left instead of a right at the corner. Amy moved for quite a way, still not happening upon anything, leading her to believe she had once more gone in the wrong direction. She was about to turn back before she happened upon a wide, open space. "Aha! So I am in the right place! I knew it!" Speeding up, she rushed around the area, scanning the ground for any signs of the elusive object she so desperately search for.

"Come on, I know you're there!" she muttered under her breath, continuing forward until she reached a patch of poppies. Peering into the thick carpet of red buds bursting into bloom, she finally found the item she was after - a pack of Lisanthius seeds. Amy let out a sigh of relief, reaching down and picking up the little brown paper packet. "I'd though I'd lost you, you rare little rascals! Now I wonder what colour you'll turn out to be? Oh, how exciting!"

Suddenly, there was noise.

The serenity of Elegance's mind and surroundings was, to put it mildly, completely shattered by incessant chatter and...noise. Her eyes snapped open into a glare, which scanned the area for the disturbance.

When she saw the lavender pony foraging among the poppies, her glare intensified. She got up, and strode as swiftly as she could without running towards her target. When she was in speaking distance, her voice was used in such a way not to disturb others that may be at the site.

"Do you mind? This is a sacred place. Why are you messing around with the poppies and exclaiming frivolities? Keep it down!" she scolded in a hushed voice.

Amaryllis jumped. "Oh! I'm sorry to have disturbed you! It's just that I lost something very important, and it just happened to be laying in the poppies!" she explained in a now more hushed tone, stashing the seeds away in her saddle bag. Turning back to face the said poppies, she was distressed to find that one or two of them had been squished by her seeds. Tutting, she focused slightly, her horn growing pink as the flowers began to bloom again. Satisfied, Amy smiled. "There. So much better! Anyway, you were saying?" she turned again to the other pony, wondering why she was looking so stern even though she seemed to have fixed everything mentioned.

Elegance raised an eyebrow at the flowers reblooming via magic, before turning her glare back to the pony.

"This place is one of remembrance, respect and honour, you do know that, right? Many ponies come here to mourn the passing of their loved one's sacrifice" she said, "How, exactly, did a pack of seeds end up in one of the memorial gardens?"

She motioned to the place where the seeds had fallen.

"The gardens are tended by old war widows. I do not think they would appreciate somepony tampering with them."

Amaryllis flushed. "Um, well I'm sorry about that. I was just passing through here earlier when the packet must've fallen out of my saddle bag." she mumbled sheepishly, awkwardly shuffling her hooves. "It won't happen again, I promise! And oh, that's so sweet! Tending to the memory of love ones passed..." she trailed off, her eyes clouding over slightly.

Elegance choked back a laugh. "Some of them would smack you in the back of the head if they hear you something like that. Those mares are as tough as bones."

The young noblemare was now suspecting that this pony didn't have all of her hooves on the ground. She didn't say this, of course, that would be rude. But she did think that maybe she should escort this pony away from this place.

"So...what are those seeds actually for?" she asked, "Actually, this isn't the best place to have conversation. Shall we move to a more social location?"

Amy grinned sheepishly. "Heh. Guess I'd better keep my eye out then!" she giggled, examining the flowers that were flourishing under oh so tender care. Whoever these mares were, they were doing a brilliant job! The poppies were a beautiufl touch, brightening the whole place up.

"Oh, you know, for planting flowers! They're Lisianthius flowers, also known as Eustoma, and generally grow in warm regions. They grow relatively tall for flowers, and come in a whole range of different colours! That's the best part! Wondering what colour these seed will grow into! And sure, the peace here shouldn't be disturbed by me! Anyway, where are we going?" she asked, realising she was rambling a bit - something that always happened when she started talking about flowers.

"Tea," Elegance said in a soft, yet annoyed, tone, "We are going to tea so that talking at a disturbing volume will be less so."

Whilst Amy saw brightness in the vast expense of red, Elegance saw, and meant it to symbolise, blood soaked battle fields. From the sky, one could see that the red formed a cross, form the ground, the flowers blended together to form its vivid colour.

As she led the Lavender away from the quiet area to the nearest tea shop, she asked, "So you don't know what colours they would grow into?" It was still in a quiet voice, possibly to counter the other's loud. "What they grow up into a colour that doesn't go well with it's fellows or it's environment? Isn't there a way to influence the shade one way or the other?"

Amaryllis clapped her front hooves excitedly. "Oh~ Tea! I love tea!" she exclaimed excitedly, wondering what flavours she'd be able to get.

She was soon snapped out of her thoughts, however, by Elegance's next question. "Well, there is if you want to use magic. A couple of simple spells can get the flowers to change colours depending on your preferences, but I personally like the suspense! And it doesn't really matter for me. My garden is a patchwork anyway!" she cheerily continued, visions of her rainbow garden appearing in her head.

Elegance briefly entertained the thought of a random assortment of flowers in a rainbow garden, but dismissed it before she gagged at its garishness. Instead, she filled her mind with the sight of the traditional teahouse they were approaching. It too was decorated with greenery, but Elegance knew that the owner had planned each and every one of them to achieve maximum, what was it? Feng Schway? The Oriental way of organising things. Elegance was more a classical mare, herself.

The door tripped a bell to chime, and the two were led to a table. After ordering tea, Elegance turned to her companion.

"So, I take it your business is flowers."

Amy's eyes widened at the beautiful tea house they were approaching. It was so big, and pretty, and floral, and oriental, and... calming. Surprisingly enough, Amy found herself relaxing at the simple sight of it. Elegance pushed the door open first, sending a waft of fresh tea scent washing over Amy, and she closed her eyes to savor it.

They were led to a table and Amy took her seat, watching as Elegance ordered her tea. She decided on some simple green tea, the antioxidants something she could do with right now. As they waited, Amy studied the various plants present in the store, smiling at the sight of some traditional bamboo mixed with a couple of white and yellow flowers, proving for a very pleasing sight.

In response to her question that was more like a statement, she nodded. "Yes. I love to collect some exotic blooms and various flowers, and tend to them to watch them flourish. It's time-consuming, but in my opinion, it's totally worth it. What do you do?"

"Me?" Elegance couldn't help smirking,"While you tend to flowers so that they may charm with their beauty, I form wonders that inspire with their awe." Shifting her clothes, she revealed her cutie mark, a image of the Memorial Monument. "I was the one that designed the place we just left. I design grand structures like Memorial Monument. It's in my blood, really. My family's legacy is constructing great things. I am a member of the Design family, and I'm proud to make my mark."

Amy's eyes widened, a new respect crossing her features. "That's... amazing to say the least." she said smiling, resting her chin on her hooves as she sipped her tea. "But... Isn't it hard to be in a family where everyone is a great person? Doesn't that make it hard to get out of their shadows?" Amy queried, frowning slightly.

"Very," Elegance sipped her tea, "But that just makes doing so all the sweeter. If life isn't a challenge, what's the point? One should try to achieve the impossible, for we always seems to underestimate ourselves."

"It seems to afflict too many ponies," she reflected, "Ponies that can do so much more, and they don't even try."

Amaryllis nodded in approval, agreeing totally with Elegance's words. "Everypony should try to make their mark on the world, and challenges are fun, but... Sometimes, I think it's a waste when ponies don't stop and smell the roses, and enjoy just the simple things in life. It's there to be savoured, but most walk by without a second glance." she sighed, drawing patterns on the table with her hooves. "It's heartbreaking to know that one simple gesture could make a pony's day, but there is never someone around who cares enough to give it."

Elegance thought about it. "Ah...I see a very different problem with ponykind, Ms....oh, we haven't even introduced ourselves properly. I am Elegance of the Design family. Pleased to meet you."

Tilting her cup back and forth, she continued. "I find that ponies are too entralled by the scent of the roses that they become complacent and never venture out of the flower field." Elegance looked at Amy sharply. "Not literally, mind you. But ponies are content with their 'simple pleasures' whether it be drink, gossip, gambling or any manner of shallow things. For instance, I can now spend the rest of my life, wasting away, drinking tea if I wanted to. The revnue and goodwill I got from the monument could last me the rest of my days. If I were a lesser pony, maybe I would be satisfied with that. I am a Design, so I am not. So I am seeking to better myself with my next project. The greatest work will always be the one I haven't done yet."

"To me, the greater tragedy is the infinite lost potential of the ponies that might have been great, if they tried."

Amy smiled. "Amaryllis Cerise. The pleasure's all mine."

It was always interesting to hear about a pony's different opinion. She found it fascinating to see how they saw the world, and always compare it with her own. Sometimes, they even brought new insight, like today. "Hmm..." she responded, contemplating the meaning of those words as she carefully picked some for her own reply. "Honestly, I think it's about finding a balance of those two. If a pony is forever centered on their work, then they will never be able to enjoy things as much, but if a pony were to be too frivolous, then that would be a waste of possible talent, as you were saying."

"Ah, but that's the trick, is it not?" Elegance reflected, "Finding a balance? Nothing is good in excess, except perhaps goodness itself. Or maybe one can find pleasure in work, and vice-versa, for in the end isn't that what our cutie marks symbolise? For instance, take you and flowers. You have made your work something you enjoy. Now all you have to do is take it to inspiring heights."

Sipping her tea, she 'hmm'-ed in thought, trying to recall a conversation she had not too long ago. "Say, have you heard of the Frozen Seed Vault? They say that it holds the seeds of every plant that has ever been discovered, and is somewhere in the frozen North, far beyond even the Crystal Empire. It's location is supposed to be completely unknown even to the Princesses, and the ponies who know where it is are the ones that spend the rest of their lives working in the vault."

She chuckled, "Unfortunately, that romantic vision is a bit too fantastic for me to believe it. The logistics of trying to maintain a place with that much secrecy is a little far fetched, especially considering the logistics of supplying such a place. But there are a number of seed vaults across Equestria. There's a big one right here in Canterlot, fittingly enough. Have you been?"

Amaryllis nodded. "Balance. The one thing many seek, and the one many cease to find. Like the ancient Chinese believed, Yin and Yang, good and bad. Life is full of balances, just waiting to be found. Guess I'm lucky enough to have a balanced job!" she grinned, swirling the contents of her cup. "Taking it to inspiring heights? Now there's an idea!" she laughed, not sure whether or not she'd be able to do it.

"Oh, of course I've heard of it! When you're in my line of work, conspiracies revolving around flowers and such circulate everyday. I swear, I've heard a story at least 5 times before I decide I've had enough. It is a pretty far fetched idea, I've got to admit, but hey, what's wrong with a little bit of imagination?" she asked with a smile, pondering the possibility of such a large corporation working right under their noses.

She examined a bit of bamboo for a while, before responding to Elegance's question. "Oh, I must sadly say I haven't. Although it would be such a brilliant experience, I have never really found the need to visit such a place." Amy explained, considering the possibility that she should, one day, take a day off and explore that fascinating place.

"Conspiracies? Flower conspiracies?"

Of all the things to conspire about, Elegance would consider flowers to be near the bottom of list. Visitors from the stars, perhaps, or maybe super secret magical experiments, but not flowers.

"I wouldn't think there would be much controversy with matters floral," Elegance confessed, "Please, tell."

Amy frowned, tapping her chin with a hoof. "Oh, nothing. Just the usual kind fo thing; using flowers to grow buildings, genetically modified seeds as medicine and to change the form of a pony, nothing that would really interest you." she said dismissively, waving a hoof back and forth as if to close the matter.

"Any interesting stories on your end?"

"Define interesting," Elegance shrugged, "There are heaps of stories frittering about like butterflies. Like the constant one about the Great Library of Canterlot whispering to ponies, that's an annoying one. But I suppose when you have a place of great magic designed by an insane great uncle, it would be more strange if there weren't stories."

Elegance blinked and frowned. "There has been talks about how Winter is lasting much more longer than usual, though. The snow has been falling throughout March, and it has been bitterly cold lately...if it weren't for the fact that the poppies were so resilient, the gardens of the Memorial Monument would be bare..."

Amy smiled at that one. "I've got to say, I've experienced that one first hand [hoof?], a couple of times in fact. The most recent time was when I was in dire need of a book for my research, and I just couldn't find it. The library spoke, I guess. It's hard to explain." she said with a shrug, unable to source the right words.

Amy nodded. "Ah, but isn't that the simple beauty? The desperate need to thrive makes them bear even the coldest of winters." she murmured fondly, wondering about the instinct that pushes them to grow.

Elegance smiled uneasily at the fact that the whispering library had a basis in truth. "Oh! That's quite interesting..."

Wanting to change the subject away from that, she continued, "Speaking of, you aren't from around here, are you? Where are you from?"
