They say Nara Prefecture is the southernmost original habitat of the lily-of-the-valley. When people finish the rice-planting, the flowers like pure white pearls start to blossom. The combination of the clear water drops and those white flowers makes a jewel of nature. It seemed as if a tree-flog was so mesmerized that it sat still. Meanwhile, the flowers of Kazaguruma (Clematis) spread their purple petals. Though they look like tiny pinwheel blades, they never spin in the wind.

*According to the 24 Solar Terms of Reiwa 3 (2021), Shouman is from May 21 to June 5.
