This photograph is taken in the garden of Chinzan-so Garden in Tokyo Bunkyo-ku. This was the residence of feudal lord villa at the Edo period, and changed to the residence of famous politician at Meiji Era, and is opened to the public now. When I was taking a walk along the narrow alley of the garden, I saw that the flower of the hydrangea was here and there in bloom. It keeps as vivid as red, blue, white, etc. If it will enter in June, sunlight will also become strong and it will become cheerful early summer. In Japan, a full-scale summer comes through the season of a rainy season after this. If we go to a garden or a park, the flower in bloom also changes quickly according to the season. So, the present time, the azalea also approaches finally and a hydrangea is full bloom.

A very pretty corner of the garden! I like the use of selective focus. The colors you chose to include make this a "cool" photo (all puns intended), I can almost feel the coolness of the garden from my chair (it helps that the A/C is working full blast today).
