It's the official hydrangea season in Japan. Soon the pouring rain season will start, which means more vibrant looking hydrangea, but no taking picture outside.
Although I hate to admit, I enjoy rainy days in Tokyo. The mood throughout the city is so calm and clean. It encourages me to take a floral bouquet outside and skip around the town in the rain(or after rain to be correct).
On a rainy day, a student from Seoul came to take one on one. She was very excited to get to play with flowers from Japan. I love going to the flower market in Tokyo, especially in the early morning. There's a woman with a cart that is full of snack, some fruits and fragrant coffee. I buy a cup when I get to the market, look through the market and try to let the flowers of that day inspire me.
On this particular morning, I was so inspired by the color and shape of that huge chrysanthemum; it almost made me scream when I found them.
It's always fun to play with something new in a creation.
Found another great spot to go for a stroll (and take pictures of our creations!) near my house. It's near Shiba park, there are endless rows of hydrangea. The air feels slightly fresher once you step into this tunnel, you can almost smell the green leaves.
Sharing Inspiration, love and passion for nature.
