Tama-ajisai (Hydrangea involucrata) lowers in Jochi-ji

Under a blazing sun, the modest violet flowers of Tama-ajisai have already begun to burst out from their sphere (Tama)-shaped bracts in every corner of Kita-kamakura to notify us about the end of summer and the start of autumn.

The strong summer sunlight, which is about to complete its duty, is drawing sharp dark silhouettes of leaves to quietly leave its parting words with us.
