Autumn brings typhoons, rain and a lot wind to Awaji. Higanbana flowers litter the about to be harvested rice paddy fields and let beekeepers know the real hornet attacks are about to begin.
“higan” a Buddhist term for the period of seven days around the Spring or Autumn equinox and “hana” the word flower.
My hair moss really took off this summer. Needed to water it twice a day and now with Septembers “every day has rain” policy it’s really looking good.
