FROM THE GARDEN OF ZEN
My photographic notes about the four seasons in Kamakura or the gardens of Zen

A red Ume (Japanese apricot) flower in Tsurugaoka-hachimangu
Ume flowers bloom beautifully during the coldest period of a year and announce the approaching of spring earlier than any flower.
In the flower language of China and Japan, Ume means nobleness and virtue because its pure and delicate flowers bloom splendidly enduring the intense coldness of winter.
