Children under a Byakusin tree in Engaku-ji temple

Many children were picnicking and playing livelily in the front garden of the Butsuden (Buddha hall).

In the mild spring sunlight, it appeared to me that these spirited children were the adorable incarnation of this joyful springtime.

The Byakusin tree, which symbolizes Zen spirit, was fondly watching over these flowerlike children.
