Rare to See


Mei-Shun’s mother taught her younger daughter the name of this lovely little flower; 叡山菫=eizan-sumire, violet blooms in highlands. Maybe taken from their habitat, survived on the edge of nearby woods. We admire Your Highness, pretty and courageous. And 定家葛=Teika-kazura follows to join her plant roster. It was named after the famous poet in Heian period (794-1185).
