Kashiwaba-azisai (Hydrangea quercifolia) leaves in Tokei-ji

The leaves of Kashiwaba-ajisai have taken on a deeper crimson color to hint us of the gradual approach of winter.

In the rainy season of early summer, this Kashiwaba-ajisai beautifies the wet garden elegantly with its white silk-like flowers.

In summer, its fresh green leaves quietly endure the trials of the blazing sun.

Winter is moving towards this garden of autumnal tints with stealthy steps.
