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

Genge (Astragalus sinicus) flowers in Jochi-ji temple
In Japan, Genge is also known as Renge-so, which means "a lotus-flower plant" because this plant bears a cyclic flower which resembles a sacred lotus flower in shape.
This small flower might be a tiny lotus pedestal for an invisible deity that is hiding somewhere in this quiet garden.
