Mitsumata (Edgeworthia chrysantha) flowers in Tokei-ji temple

In the well-tended garden of Tokei-ji, yellow Mitsumata is coming into full bloom and mesmerizes us with the magic of its pleasant color and perfume.

The overblown Ume flowers, which have nearly fulfilled their noble duty, are being scattered quietly in the soft breeze of spring.

Seasons are surely and gradually changing in this small but magical garden.
