Autumn Rural village

It’s the harvest time for rice.

There are many red spider lilies around these rice field, very much like ” Autumn ” in Japan.


Red spider lily is called as ” higanbana 彼岸花” or ” manjushaka 曼珠沙華”. The time to their flower blooming is around Autumnal Equinox Day, it is called as ” higan”.

Red spider lily is beautiful but I was tought its poisonous by my grandmother so that she always told me to not pick the flower.


Whenever I find this flower, it reminds me of my grandmother…
