Suiren (water lily) flower: Kita-kamakura
The colorful flowers of spring, which once dominated this world entirely, have vanished away almost completely.
The gentle hills of Kita-kamakura are thickly covered with rich green of lively trees and plants.
Insects and birds are moving about hurriedly to prepare for the approaching of the rainy season.
The migratory birds of summer are now arriving here from the south.
Their sweet songs of courting can be heard here and there in the fragrant air of the jade green hills.
Again this year, water lily flowers bloomed on the water surface of a small basin in my garden.
