Gaku-ajisai (Hydrangea macrophylla f. normalis) flowers in Kita-kamakura
The rainy season has just started and every plant keeps flourishing and blooming vigorously throughout Kita-kamakura. The rich moisture and moderate temperature of this season are energizing the growth of life greatly .
In this watery season, blue is an essential color and it creates various brilliant purples in combination with red pigments.
Everywhere in Kita-kamakura, I encounter bright blue and violet flowers and deep green leaves, which seem to be an exceptionally good gift from the wet sky during this season.
