Waterlily flowers: Ohuna botanical garden (Kamakura)



In the mild sunlight of early afternoon, the dainty flowers of waterlily have already awaked from their sleep and are in bloom gently on the quiet surface of the pond.

Until its short life ends, a waterlily flower opens in the bright morning sun and closes in the dim light of late afternoon.

Like a beautiful illusion of life, every flower blooms dedicatedly and too soon vanishes away secretly before our eyes.

(In homage to Claude Monet)
