Autumn leaves: Tokei-ji

The flaming colors of autumn leaves are deepening still more as the severe cold and pale gloom of winter are increasingly reigning over the gardens of Zen.

Soon these richly colored leaves will reach the height of their beauty and then be scattered suddenly by the bitter blast of winter wind.

I know about the transience of these gorgeous colors, which is the very reason why I am so deeply charmed by these autumnal tints.
