THE FLOWER OF THE HARMONY TREE

The Flower of the Harmony Tree

Image description:

The beautiful, star-shaped white flowers grow amongst this mass of green, usually in clusters of around four or five blooms. They are each approximately a palmspan in diameter, consisting of five petals. The centre of each flower is an unusual blue-green, of a similar shade to Baveras' eye. The colour is brightest nearest the very centre of the flowers, and becomes fainter the higher up the petal, giving in fully to the pure white around three nailsbreadths up. There are also dozens of tiny golden stamins at the centre of each flower, each reaching around two nailsbreadth in length. It is these that send out the heavenly perfume, which fills the air around the tree. Picture drawn by Tikanni Corazon.
