A Ume (Japanese apricot) flower in Kencho-ji

A sign of spring is sensed in the gardens of Zen as the faint fragrance of Ume flowers which floats on a breath of the air.

The bright sunlight begins to come back deliberately between the gloomy clouds and the dull gray sky of winter starts on its retreat evidently.

Plants are anxiously waiting for the arrival of spring to present bouquets to this season of awakening and growing.
