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

Haku-mokuren (Magnolia denudata) flowers: Engaku-ji
The white lotus-like flowers of Haku-mokuren (white magnolia) are in full bloom high up in the air as if to be in an ecstasy of joy.
It is one of my most heartfelt delights to again see these brilliant but transient flowers of this great tree in every spring.
This gracefully mature
tree was presented by Lu Xun (a historic Chinese novelist) to this temple in 1933 as a token of his thanks.
