Sunflower and plums

060620sunflower01_1At last the first sunflower in our garden bloomed.

Every year we can see this flower from this season, so when we find it we feel that a summer is coming soon.

By the way I got plums in our garden today.

We have 3 plum trees there but one of them didn’t have many plums …….

060620plum01_1These plums are which I got today.

This plum’s name is "Bungo Ume" in Japanese.
This tree is a symbol tree of Ooita prefecture where my grandmother lives, and my aunt brought this young tree 20 years ago to plunt it in our garden.

So recently we can get a lot of plums from this tree every year and make plum wine by ourselves for dinner’s aperitif except busy season.

Now we are serving this plum wine which we made 5 years ago.

It’s a really amaging and great wine !

Would you like to try it ?
Please order !!
