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

Fukujyu-so (Adonis ramosa) flowers in Engaku-ji
After the unseasonal one-night snow, I found the small flowers of Fukujyu-so blooming inconspicuously in the mild morning sunlight.
”Fukujyu-so” means "the plant of long life and happiness" and its flowers blossom as an early and brilliant forerunner of spring.
The lingering snow, which seemed to be a last trace of winter in the garden, disappeared from view soon in the warmth of the sun.
