Sogetsu and Akane Teshigahara


Message from Akane Teshigahara

Whenever we see the green of plants, we feel calm

and at ease.

Now, under the sky of our rainy season, different shades

of moisturized greenery really comfort us.

The flower of this season, hydrangeas, has new varieties

every year and their particular colors and shapes are

a delight to our eyes in flower shops.

We treasure any spell of bright sunshine more

because it comes through a rainy, cloudy sky.

We can spend days happily and cheerfully despite rather gloomy weather.

Rain is the blessing of nature and nurtures everything.
