Hydrangea Season

In the beginning of our early rainy season, hydrangeas started lining the streets everywhere near my place. They are still starting, but now I am seeing a lot blue ones like these.

Hydrangea, or ajisai・紫陽 are a popular wagashi and I had a hunch Kichi Zoh would pull through and they did not disappoint! I love the mix of blues, pinks, purples and crystal-like raindrops mimicking the morning dew.


I just am crazy for the slightly more impressionist, abstract wagashi. One of these rainy says I might try my hand at a hydrangea.
