Higan-bana (Lycoris radiata) flowers in Tokei-ji

The long summer ended finally and autumn has come round again.

In this deep green garden where every summer flower had disappeared, the vivid vermilion flowers of Higan-bana suddenly appear like bright torches flaming beneath the sky of crisp blue.

In a little while, as autumn quickly deepens, the beautiful colors of the season of ripeness will lend calm elegance to this peaceful garden certainly.

Dear Kunihiko-san,

It is so good to see again new pictures from your wonderful area ! Though I did not post for a long time... Sometimes you do not have words to say more about the perfect moment you manage to catch and share with us.
I have been always very intrigated by Higan-bana. Such aerial and bright flowers, as a fire at the edges of rice fields in the country !
Thanks again for sharing it...

Dear Ajisai,

Thank you again for your kind comment and support to this blog of mine.

The long and boiling summer was over finally and the gardens of Zen are beginning to recover their quiet beauty again.

It is a great pleasure to know you like this photo.

Another photos of Higan-bana will be posted next time.

With all best wishes.
