In Sholha Village, Nyemo County, Lhasa, Tibet Autonomous Region, the blooming wolfsbane distributing in the highland barley fields catch peoples eyes.   

 In June, two months before the harvest season of highland barley, Tsering Dorje ushers in the crown of the year of his crops.  

 At the age of 68, Tsering Dorje, inheritor of Sholha Tibetan paper, an intangible cultural heritage at national level, tends the field carefully.  

 Wolfsbane is the main material of making Sholha Tibetan paper.  

 My grandfather and my father lived on making Tibetan paper, and passed down the making skill to me. Tibetan paper is a memory that I want to pass it on. I plant wolfsbane as a trial, said Tsering Dorje.
