Ajisai (Hydrangea) flowers: Kita-kamakura

Ajisai (Hydrangea) flowers: Kita-kamakura

Ajisai (hydrangea) knows when the rainy season begins. 

It prepares its fresh green leaves and countless flower buds to bathe the merciful rain that this season brings. 

By absorbing abundant rainwater, Ajisai flowers subtly continue to transform their colors and shapes until they lose all moisture and wither away.

The mysterious chemistry of the rain and soil components causes the colors of Ajisai flowers to keep changing constantly. 

In the pale sunlight from the gray rainy sky, the ornamental petals exhibit the amazing diversity and gradation of tints that any other flower can never present.
