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

A Shaga (Iris japonica) flower in Jochi-ji temple
Although a "Shaga" flower is fairly familiar in Kita-kamakura of mid-spring, it impresses me with its delicate and exquisite figure every time I see it.
"Shaga" means "a fan made of Japanese cypress slats" which was used by nobles at the Imperial Court. This flower is also called Kocho-bana, which means a butterfly-flower.
