Shaga (Iris japonica) flowers in Engaku-ji

The pale flowers of Shaga are blooming modestly above the small stream flowing silently.

The subtle passage of seasons is often hinted to us by the appearance and disappearance of diverse living beings in the gardens.

Soon these fragile flowers will vanish away inconspicuously to let us find that spring ends finally and the various living things which notify of the arrival of early summer will show themselves one after another.
