buckwheat flower.

brank, buckwheat.
(Fagopyrum esculentum Moench )

One day I was given the seeds of buckwheat. They germinated in a day and had flowers in a month.
The diameter of flower is such small as 5mm. When I took a close-up photos of them, I found they were so lovely. The flowers close after dark, but in day time my container looks like a flower garden.
I love soba, Japanese noodle, and I know that I can make buckwheat flour from the seeds.
I'm sorry that my buckwheat flowers in a small container are not enough to make it.

Language of the flower.   Sweet memory.
