Suisen (Narcissus tazetta var. chinensis) flowers in Engaku-ji

The flowers of narcissus are in full bloom in the spring gardens of Kita-kamakura. 

Usually these flowers bloom in midwinter and give off a pleasant fragrance in the chilly scentless air.

In the sunny gardens where spring has awakened, the delightful aroma of ume flowers is pervading the warm air and innocently concealing the precious fragrance of these late-blooming narcissus flowers.
