A Tsubaki (camellia) flower in Tokei-ji temple

In the middle of winter when almost all other flowers disappear from view, Tsubaki flowers bloom flourishingly one after another and soothe our winter blues under the wintry gloomy sky.

Although spring has already been past its prime now, this crimson flower of winter is quietly blossoming as if to love solitude in the fresh green and to bid us a fond farewell.
