‘Spring has come!’ This is the phrase my late father, who was eager to learn English but could not complete his desire, liked to say whenever the weather was becoming warm. Even before the end of February now the weather is so mild in London, unlike the usual dark grey English weather this time of year it is very sunny with beautiful blue sky. So I go out for a walk and find some bulbous plants flowering.
The scene with yellow and purple dots in the field made me smile. They are the flower buds of Crocus just about to open.
So this is my interpretation of the cheerful early spring field as a Japanese sweet.
I will try making more detailed Crocus flowers later if I can but this is the view of the field right now out there. 🌺🥀🌷🌼
It is made of a type of Japanese sweet called ‘Nerikiri’ and the centre filling is sweet and smooth Azuki (Red) Bean paste. The leaf parts were coloured and flavoured with Matcha Green Tea.
It’s Vegan and Gluten free.
Enjoy the early spring🌺🥀🌷🌼 for whatever you like to do!😊
