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

A water lily flower in Kita-kamakura
When the rainy season sets in, the gentle flower of Suiren rises to the water surface as if to give this moist season a hearty welcome.
As the name "Suiren (sleeping lotus)" suggests, this short-lived aquatic flower repeats its opening in the morning and closing in the late afternoon for about 4 days.
Day by day, this flower changes its figure by bits like a growing nymph under the rainy sky.
