Ajisai season is long past by now. But we can still enjoy them.
I drove pretty far just to see this spot. I had passed it a few days prior when I visited Nagasawa Falls. I was kicking myself for not stopping at that time. I knew mom would appreciate this flock of hydrangea.
I feel like hydrangea are fake.
The blue and purple colors don't seem of nature. This synthetic quality makes me feel uncomfortable about them. I appreciated them much more this season though.
I also thought about the little blue hydrangea in the garden at home.
I hope it's doing well and will show its colors when it can.
While the seasons seem to be here one moment and gone the next in this part of Japan, there is always just enough room to enjoy each one in succession.
I had a pleasant time absorbing the hydrangea saturation for several weeks.
Then the humidity reminds us that summer has come and we want fall here too soon.
