Mainichi Hanafuda: willow/rain

There's a lot going on in the willow suit, so I'm going to back off and do one card per day again until we're through it. For starters, there's only one 'junk' card in this suit, and it's a weird one. Most of the cards portray a willow tree, but it's alternately known as the "rain" suit. Finally, it's November in Japanese hanafuda, but December in Korea.

This here's a ribbon card with my own interpretation of willow in the background. Whereas the ribbon card tends to be one of the fanciest in many suits, it's actually the least interesting one of the willows. Three more exciting cards to come!
