Autumn leaves: Kaizo-ji

Autumn leaves: Kaizo-ji

Under the pale gray sky, the bright autumn leaves are quietly waiting for cold wintry blasts to scatter and fall to the ground. 

Soon, the pleasant colors of flowers will almost disappear from view and the desolate wintry scene will continue long until next spring comes.

On the side of the narrow stone steps leading up to the humble garden of this temple, the small magenta flowers of Sazanka (Camellia sasanqua) are inconspicuously blooming as if to silently bid farewell to the late autumn which is leaving hastily.
