Ume (Japanese apricot) flowers in Engaku-ji

The quiet yellow-green surface of the Byakuro-chi pond greatly enhanced the elegance of the red Ume flowers. Byakuro-chi means "the pond where snowy herons visit."

Until the gray and cold winter comes again, numerous varieties of enchanting colors continue to beautify the gardens of Zen one after the other with the changing of the seasons.
