FROM THE GARDEN OF ZEN
My photographic notes about the four seasons in Kamakura or the gardens of Zen
March 1, 2013
Jyugatsu-sakura (Prunus subhirtella Miq. var. autumnalis Makino) flowers in Tokei-ji
The pale pink flowers of Jyugatsu-sakura are blossoming inconspicuously on the the leafless branches arched across the narrow grove path.
"Jyugatsu-sakura" means "October sakura" and its flowers modestly blossom in October and April.
This flower can be seen throughout winter as a humble but precious flower in this cold gloomy season.
