You know what it means when Hydrangeas start to bloom...the rainy season is here! It's been raining off and on this whole week. Need to get my rubber boots out.
Hydrangeas are called 'Ajisai' in Japanese. The kanji (紫陽花) roughly translates to 'purple sun flower' which sort of fits because it is shaped like a sun and some of them are purple. But I see pink, blue, and white hydrangeas too.
A pretty flower to brighten up the rainy day blues.
