The blossoming plum

My illustration today is for a haiku by Issa (1763 - 1827).

The blossoming plum!
Today all the fires of hell remain empty.

Hobart today is the embodiment of this gorgeous haiku.  Pink and white plum and almond blossom everywhere, and magnolias bowed down with enormous flowers.  I'm off to the Botanical Gardens!!
