Ume (Japanese apricot) flowers in Engaku-ji
Spring has made its belated arrival at last.
The fragrant flowers of early spring have begun to bloom lively in unison and are adding delightful colors and elegant fragrances to the quiet gardens of Zen.
Flowers are blooming devotedly and peacefully to fulfill their own precious duty under the order of nature. The esoteric beauties of them always open my eyes to the truth of life.
The bright seasons of growth and breeding have only just gotten under way.
