Sion (Aster tataricus) flowers in Kaizo-ji

The light blue of the afternoon sky, the green and red of leaves of trees and the pale purple of Sion flowers created a brilliant and complex mosaic of autumn.

The full-blown flowers of Sion were quietly facing toward the the declining sun in the modest garden where a faint hint of winter could be felt in the air.

These flowers are present in almost all Japanese gardens I've ever seen. They really are beautiful.

Thank you for your kind comment.

These lovely flowers have disappeared from view totally here.

The seasons turn too quickly.

I must wait next October to enjoy the beauty of Sion flowers again.
