The Stewartia 夏椿 is opening its flowers this dewy morning. This is a tree that is beautiful year round. In the fall, the leaves are a dazzling red. In the winter, the silvery bark stands out.
The Styrax (Snowbell) エゴノキ is also opening up its fragrant flowers.
And the Iris are always spectacular, especially covered with drops of rain. It’s a great morning to do chores like scooping duckweed out of the pond for the chickens, planting beans and corn, weeding, and just being outdoors.
