Hana-shobu (Iris sanguinea) flowers in Meigetsu-in

The beauty of this flower must be derived from the abundant rainwater of this season.

The thick drooping petals of this iris bears plentiful water and the azure of water may create the marvelous tints of purple in combination with the rosy pigments of this flower.

Hana-shobu flowers are the pleasant incarnation of the gentle rain shower in this season.
