Ume (japanese apricot) : Engaku-ji

Ume (japanese apricot) : Engaku-ji

If plants and trees possess their minds, then their blooming may secretly imply their silent joy of being alive and breeding in the turning of the seasons.

As if to unveil the sign of coming spring, numerous snow-white Ume flowers are brightly blooming on the gnarled branches of the long-lived mossy tree which has quietly endured the harsh cold of winter.

Before long, these graceful flowers will scatter and disappear one after another. The new green leaves of this tree will come out quickly all together to erase the memory of these lost flowers.
