Fuyo (Hibiscus mutabilis) flowers in Engaku-ji
Beneath the sky of deep cloudless blue, the white flowers of Fuyo, which have beautified the very end of summer, are blooming lively as if to heartily rejoice in the precious bright sunlight still staying behind after the end of summer.
The clear serene air of early autumn refines the azure of this sky to the utmost.
The blazing sunlight and intense heat, which have long reigned over here, are fading away being aware of the time of their withdrawal.
