wagashi 2012 spring 17

Paulownia Court by Toraya, Kyoto, celebrates the early flowering of Paulownia my garden.  The tree is nw abiut 10 years old.  It started from a seed and grew to be a big tree now and it first started flowering 3 years ago, usually in May.  Other Paulownia trees in Vancouver will flower end of May and early June.
Toraya's oshimono is so beautiful, the colours are natural and the craftmanship superb!
