Haru-botan (spring peony) flowers in Kencho-ji
In the true height of spring, the magnificent flowers of Haru-botan are blooming in a dignified manner as the queen of flowers in the clear and brilliant sun.
Their thin elegant petals seem to be made of finest sheer silk and the transient splendor of these flowers fades as rapidly as every earthly glory.
After this short blooming season of spring peony, the long spell of rainy weather will approach here to suggest that summer is almost upon us.
