Flower of the day, May 27 2009

Hello, everyone!

This is the flower at May 27 lesson. It is called shakyaku in Japanese. I’m not sure the name in English, but it’s Paeonia lactiflora or paeoniae radix, I guess. It has a big blossom (about 10cm) and is pretty pale pink. Our master says that shakyaku is often used at tea ceremonies in this season.

Have a good day!!
