FROM THE GARDEN OF ZEN
My photographic notes about the four seasons in Kamakura or the gardens of Zen

A Hozuki (Physalis alkekengi var. franchetii) fruit in Engaku-ji
After the pale yellow flower of Hozuki blooms, its fruit begins to grow and its calyx develops to envelope the fruit like a vivid orange pouch.
When the fruit ripens, this pouch decays and finally becomes a finely woven basket for the vermilion fruit.
