A painting subject inspired by an episode in the 10c tale in OOKAGAMI ‘勾 concerning a daughter of Ki no Tsurayuki ‹IŠÑ”V (898?-945?) who refuses to part with a plum tree ume ”~. Emperor Murakami ‘ºã (r. 946-967) decided to replace the withered plum tree in front of his palace Seiryouden ´—Á“a, with a magnificent beautiful red plum tree from Tsurayuki's daughter's garden. When a messenger arrived to take the tree, however, the daughter attached a waka ˜a‰Ì to the branch of the plum tree.
