About a hundred kilometers north of Tokyo there is a flower park famous for its old wisteria trees. Several of them are about a hundred years old. The old and the young ones, all bloom beautifully every year. I love the pale purple color of the wisteria flowers and their somewhat sweet scent. I am so much in love with these trees that I have six potted wisteria trees in my tiny garden. They all bloom in different colors from white to pink to purple (that is when I manage to make them bloom.)
The wisteria in the park, however, are nothing short of spectacular. Below I have a picture of one of the old trees whose branches have been trained on trellis and now cover an area of about 100 sq m. Walking under them while they are in full bloom is an experience which I never tire of having.
Though I know very little about Zen Buddhism, I have heard that a general belief in Zen is that no matter how big the concept it can be expressed in a tiny set.
So here is my tiny interpretation of the huge wisteria in bloom.
I used the embeds not only on the surface but also in depth so though the impression might change somehow once you begin using the soap, the pattern can be enjoyed up until it is finished.
It is amazing how the images we can create with embeds are almost limitless.
I wish you a sunny day!
