    In the spring of 2015, while Lisa was weaving this piece, she and Irvin were able to travel to Japan. The trip was after the orchards at Centinela had bloomed, but while the cherries were blooming in the beautiful Japanese gardens they visited. The touch of red in the middle is both a Chimayo color and a reference to the rich red in Japanese dcor and in their flag. This piece has natural as a background color and sky blue, grays, spring green, pinks, peach, undyed brown, and red included in its design. It uses natural dyes, which means that yarn in this piece uses dyes that were obtained from flowers, leaves, wood, or insects. It was woven by Lisa Trujillo who is a spinner and weaver with more than thirty years of weaving in the Chimayo and Rio Grande tradition, Lisa has won many awards at Spanish Market. It measures approximately 48 by 72 inches.
