Ajisai (hydrangea) and Yuri (lily) flowers: Eisho-ji

Ajisai (hydrangea) and Yuri (lily) flowers: Eisho-ji

In the peaceful garden of the old nunnery temple, the star-shaped blue flowers of the hydrangea and the graceful red lily flowers are blooming secretly in the obscure corner.

The exquisite assortment of these flowers looks like a seasonal flower arrangement which splendidly symbolizes the approaching of the summer rainy season.

Sometimes I faintly feel the presence of an unseen noble nun in the fragrance of incense remaining in the empty Buddha hall of this temple. I imagine that these seasonal flowers might have been arranged stealthily by the gentle soul of that nun.
