Winter bamboo grove: Kencho-ji
The pale winter sunlight of the westering sun is streaming into the silent bamboo grove and the bamboo stalks are casting their long shadows on the cold ground which is thickly covered with the dead leaves.
In this wintry garden, every living thing is waiting patiently for the return of the gentle spring sunlight which will awaken it up from deep winter sleep.
The fallen leaves quietly keep decaying to provide fertile soil for the lively resurgence of life in the prime of the year.
