Spring has recently arrived, and it is almost the time when flowers start to sprout. So I want you to help them grow.
Given two numbers,
m flowers randomly placed on an
A single flower looks like this:
A flower's position is defined by where its

Output can be a list of strings, each string representing one row of the grid, or a delimited string following the same guideline as the list. Standard methods of output.

Note that the newline after the word

Other test cases:
- 1, 10
- 0, 100
- 5, 8
- 6, 3
Code golf so shortest code wins!
