Shaga (Iris japonica) flowers in Jochi-ji temple

In the undergrowth of this quiet garden, the Shaga flowers were modestly blooming under the bright young leaves of fern as if they realized the passing of their joyful springtime.

A Shaga flower, which has fulfilled its destiny as an elegant symbol of lively spring, will soon and secretly disappear from the garden of Kita-kamakura.

The seasons are rotating forever.
