Flowers in Mid-Keichitsu

March 6-20 is Keichitsu (啓蟄) – Insects awaken – in the traditional 24-season Japanese calendar. March 11-15, the middle of its three micro-seasons, is Momo hajimete saku (桃始笑), when peach blossoms begin to bloom. I photographed some flowers on three of the five days of Momo hajimete saku.
