Iwatabako (Conandron ramondioides) flowers in Tokei-ji

The royal purple flower of Iwatabako is one of the beautiful emblems of the rainy season in Kita-kamakura.

I feel that these tiny flowers (about 1.5 cm across) are silently whispering with each other about the heartfelt joy of blooming on the moss-covered surface of weathered rocks.
