Kinmokusei (Osmanthus fragrans var. aurantiacus) flowers in Jochi-ji

The period during which the bright orange flowers of Kinmokusei trees bloom is extremely short. These tiny flowers open and fall in concert as if by previous common consent everywhere in Kita-kamakura.

I found enormous flowers of Kinmokusei trees blooming spectacularly in many places few days ago.

After one night of a driving rain, most of these flowers fell all at once and created the brilliant mosaics of autumn on the ground wet with raindrops in every place.
