My response to Carpe Diem #1457 luxuriance (shigeri)
Chèvrefeuille says he didn’t find it easy to translate today’s summer kigo because it’s a rare one, which has been taken from the sub-division plants. He tells us that luxuriance (shigeri) is specifically used to describe the beauty of foliage, the beauty of the richness of, for example, wisteria, willow or other beautiful trees, bushes and flowers that are in full bloom.
