Did it come from a rectangle, 8x8 grid, with one elias stretch?

I'm sorry to be a bit nit-picky, but grass are monocots. Meaning that seedlings only have one cotyledon opposed to dicots who have two, like the seedling you folded. Non the less it is a very pretty model, but definitely no grass.

I think they do...whether any of us likes it or not, people take what they see as representative of reality. As a paleontologist, I'm perhaps particularly sensitive to this issue because so many artists (in any medium, but particularly drawings, paintings, and animations) can't be bothered to do a lick of research before creating a restoration of some extinct animal, and they invariably get some anatomical details wrong. As an analogy, it's kind of like making an elephant with two trunks, or a bird with five toes, or a crab with six legs (like more or less every Disney arthropod, which is invariably missing one pair of appendages). The anatomy is the anatomy. This is not to say that all origami must be anatomically correct down to some absurd level of detail; obviously, all origami is ultimately representational at some level, and that's fine. But the gross level of detail is still important if one is trying to capture the essence of an organism in paper.

.... Before box-pleating, we used to fold quadrupeds with 3 ... or even 2 legs ! :-)

I majored in Biology and some of these things bother me, but since I fold a lot of plants I must admit it's difficult to get the correct number of tepals from a square, particularly for the monocots which have flower parts in multiples of three. I aim for realism but most of the time I just have to settle. :P

Regardless, that is a very nice plant model! I'm sorry to hear it doesn't fit the rules for this challenge.

All I associate with spring in Japan is picnic under cherry trees. That's not much to begin with. There are already lots of cherry blossom models out there, so I didn't want to fold yet another one. For me a topic has to bring a picture into my mind that I then fold. So for me it was no good topic, sorry. I guess there are people out there who have more ideas as to what spring in Japan means but I really have no clue how spring in Japan differs to spring anywhere else.
