I wrote earlier about our trip to Yamadera. There were plenty of summer flowers blooming that day, giving us a lot of small sights to enjoy too.
These star-shaped ajisai are some of my favorite flowers. I love the color too.
I had never noticed the bright red and green winged seeds of maples before. They were really fun to look at, but hard to photograph as they were dancing in the wind.
We saw these tiny white flowers and little green leaves in the damp shaded spots along the stone steps leading to and from the temple. They were like plants in miniature.
