Magic Tree


Well, I'm not really sure what this Hamamelis Japonica plant looks like in full bloom. But I'm guessing it did not grow this glove...

Glove? Are you sure that isn’t a five-petalled, striped Hamamelis Japonica blossom?

Oh, yes. People in Japan were always so kind to leave a dropped or lost article of clothing up where it could be seen.

I found some fingerless gloves (different color than here) recently that help when I practice 尺八 bamboo flute in the cold. But no need these days. Yesterday it was in the 80s. Today, it was in the lower 70s F (around 22 Cº). Whoopie!

I have seen this kind of tree, its fruits appear only in winter and usually one at a time...

Who knows where the owner went? I can think of all kinds of answers. It made an interesting thing to take a picture of.

Some cold-fingered soul will appreciate finding her glove back. You're so funny, Kaori!

[My guess is that besides the peacock, the other two birds are the flamingo and the heron... but hey, I'm no bird expert either! :-D ]
