FROM THE GARDEN OF ZEN
My photographic notes about the four seasons in Kamakura or the gardens of Zen
October 11, 2011
Kinmokusei (Osmanthus fragrans var. aurantiacus) flowers in Tokei-ji
The small golden flowers of Kinmokusei (fragrant olive) trees suddenly bloom all at once and emit a delightful aroma of autumn everywhere about here.
The spectacular blooming of these fragrant flowers is one of the most evident and graceful manifestations of the start of autumn in Kita-kamakura.
When a sudden rain falls, these flowers scatter simultaneously and decorate the ground surfaces splendidly with their gold petals.
