FROM THE GARDEN OF ZEN
My photographic notes about the four seasons in Kamakura or the gardens of Zen
May 21, 2013
Hakuunboku (Styrax obassia) flowers in Jochi-ji
In the mild afternoon sun, the white flower clusters of Haku-un-boku are floating on the balmy breeze and emitting a fragrant soothing aroma into the air.
The name "Haku-un-boku" means "white cloud tree." The flowering season of these cloud-like flowers is only a week or so.
Like fleecy clouds drifting across the sky, these flowers fade away swiftly in the flow of time.
