Wisteria - a plant that has a large cultural significance in China and Japan and it appears in many stories and religious teachings. It is often used as a symbol for lost love or unrequited love. The Fuji Musume ("Wisteria Maiden") was a popular subject of folk paintings. It is believed to have been inspired by a dance. Fuji Musume paintings were given at weddings as a good luck token. It was even adapted into a kabuki drama. The title character becomes smitten with a young man and steps out of the painting to try to win his heart. Her attempts are futile, and she steps back into the world of the painting with a heavy heart.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Want to Share my Polo?'.

Best wishes,
Philip

I'm very interested in the Language Of Flowers, Philip, and so was fascinated by your narrative about the wisteria. Love the way you have filled the frame with the attractive blooms. (Mine is very unhappy, not sure whyTongue).
