Show Me Mother's Day

Around this time of year a few years back, I was wondering around Meiji Jingu Shrine when I noticed people coming in and out of a forested area. I had time so I went and paid some yen to go see what it was. I didn't pay attention to where I was going I just wanted to explore. 

So this is what I saw.... 

Hundreds of Iris flowers!

I was particularly interested in the people painting them.  

It's hard to imagine that only a few minutes walk and it's back to the concrete jungle. I found myself thinking of my mom in this beautiful garden because her favorite flowers are irises! 

This is my entry for Show Me Japan.
