紫陽花の 八重咲く如く 彌つ代にを  いませわが背子 見つつ偲はむ
左大臣橘諸兄 (684 - 757)  万葉集

as hydrangea bloom over and over again prospered monarch many generations
  every time see a flower will be to glorify the fine of your   
Tachibana no Moroe (684 - 757)  Man'yōshū





あなたがたのうち、だれが思いわずらったからとて、自分の寿命をわずかでも延ばすことができようか。
また、なぜ、着物のことで思いわずらうのか。野の花がどうして育っているか、考えて見るがよい。働きもせず、紡ぎもしない。
しかし、あなたがたに言うが、栄華をきわめた時のソロモンでさえ、この花の一つほどにも着飾ってはいなかった。

マタイによる福音書 第6章 第27 - 29節


Which of you, by being anxious, can add one moment to his lifespan?
Why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. 
Theydon't toil, neither do they spin,
yet I tell you that even Solomon in all his glory was not dressed like one of these.

Matthew 6:27 - 29





   " 聖 " (shō, or sei). It is translated as holy, sacred, consecration, sage, saint, saintly, etc.
   This character is written by Kanzi, Regular script.

   Etymology : Phono-semantic compound
    耳 (ear) + 呈 (appear)


This character reminds the saints.
It has a noble impression.

May be because feel through the five senses.



言問はぬ 木すら紫陽花 諸茅等が  練の村戸に あさむかえけり
大伴 家持 (740 - 744)  万葉集

even the tree that does'nt say a thing  hydrangea color is likely to change  it was deceived in variable mind  
Ōtomo no Yakamochi (740 - 744)  Man'yōshū







This video have introduced the hydrangea "kaleidoscope" .
The variety was developed in the provinces of Shimane Prefecture.

It is very rare.





人はみな草のごとく、その栄華はみな草の花に似ている。草は枯れ、花は散る。
しかし、主の言葉は、とこしえに残る

ペテロの第一の手紙 第1章 第24 - 25節


For, "All flesh is like grass, and all of man's glory like the flower in the grass. 
The grass withers, and its flower falls;
but the Lord's word endures forever."

1 Peter 1:24 - 25


God bless you.

  29. きれい!本当にこんな月並みな言葉しか出ないんですが、本当にきれい!爽やかで清楚で気高く、ブルーは私の大好きな色なのでもうこの紫陽花の虜です。「万華鏡」といいますと、カラフルな色を思いましたが、ブルー系のみの万華鏡もいいですね。連想ですが、ステンドグラスも色やデザインの華やかさでなく違った質のガラスで組み合わせた無着色のステンドグラスに惹かれます。Belated Happy Mother’s Day!

    ReplyDelete
  30. 万華鏡とは、うまくなずけられたと思います。約60度の対象形?のように花びらがならんでるように感じます。白系の小花の重なりが聖らかで、とてもかわいい花ですね。どんな花をかけあわせたら、こんな美しい花が生まれるのでしょう。
    Have a nice week!
