Iwatabako (Conandron ramondioides) flowers in Tokei-ji temple

Although the weather in this early summer was unsettled, the delicate violet flowers of Iwatabako have bravely risen up from the moist rock surface and come into bloom in the garden of Tokei-ji at last.

It seemed to me that these tiny star-shaped flowers were quietly talking to me about the beauty of the universe to which they belonged.
