Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's almost time to publish our new episode as I am writing it right now. I had a busy day an hadn't enough time to publish it earlier. This episode is a kind of "re-prise", because in an earlier post, last month, I had a "Little Creatures"-episode about this same flower, but at that moment I hadn't the idea to bring the seven sacred autumn flowers as a prompt, so forgive me, if this "re-prise" is somewhat fast after it's original.
The Yellow colored Valerian is a part of the flower-family of Honeysuckle (what a coincedence, my penname "Chèvrefeuille" is French for Honeysuckle) and this part is called Patrinia.There are about 17 species native to grassy mountain habitats in China, Siberia and Japan. These are unassuming clump-forming perennial plants having thin, erect stems with few leaves and bearing a terminal inflorescence with yellow or white flowers.

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and wil remain open until November 9th at noon (CET). I will publish our new episode, Boneset or Fujibakama, later on. For now ... just have fun! !! By the way I will publish our new episode of "Little Creatures" tomorrow, because of lack of time. So please have a little bit patience !!
