Hanashobu (iris) flowers: Ofuna botanical garden (Kamakura)
Basking in the bright early-summer sun, the fragile silken flowers of iris are blooming stunningly to the utmost.
The wet and warm atmosphere just before the rainy season gives birth to the precious gradations of violet colors and the exquisite figures of these flowers. Each flower blooms only for three days and becomes withered up too soon.
(From these violet iris flowers, I remember the beautiful painting titled "The Iris Garden At Giverny" by Claude Monet.)
