Originally part of a pair, this screen depicts flowering trees of spring—three large cherry trees near the center and a slender branch laden with plum blossoms that belongs to the tree originally depicted on the lost, left screen. A sinuous willow tree stands in the middle of the composition, with its cascading young leaves in pale green. Large cherry and plum blossoms are raised in low relief using gofun. A cluster of small dandelions fills the corner space at the lower left.
