Ajisai (hydrangea) flowers in Engaku-ji temple

The gradational Persian blue of this flower made me think of the beautiful Ukiyo-es of Katsushika Hokusai.

Various picturesque flowers of hydrangea are beginning to bloom vividly all over Kita-kamakura and foretelling the arrival of the rainy season just before midsummer.
