This photo has just made me realize that an ajisai doesn't have to be in full bloom to be beautiful!PS: I love ajisai. It's my mother's favourite flower, too, so it always makes me miss her.
This is the ajisai in our mini-garden. If I can remember to do it, I want to take regular pictures. Trouble is I'm not at my best in the morning and it tends to be dark by the time I get home...My grandma had two big hydrangeas outside her house too.
