Hagi (Lespedeza) flowers: Kaizo-ji, Kamakura, Japan



The countless flower cascades of Hagi are surrounding the aged stone steps leading up to the wooded gate of this small Buddhist temple

The full blown flowers of Hagi, which are beautifully adorning every garden of temples in Kamakura, are one of the splendid symbols which let us notice the beginning of autumn.
