Hydrangea – Flower of Rainy Season
‘Ajisai’ (hydrangea) indicates the beginning of the rainy season. I like this flower at this season, especially at the St. Luke International Hospital Chapel. The color of the flower at the chapel is fresh deep blue, but it changes the color to pink red according to the soil acidity.
The garden of the chapel has many cherry trees besides hydrangea. We enjoy cherry blossom in spring. We enjoy blue and pink hydrangea with fresh green leaves in early summer. Trees give us comfortable shades in mid summer. The leaves turn to brown and red in autumn.
We, patients in the hospital also, feel the changing four seasons in a garden. I love this small garden. This must be the gift from the God.
