梅雨といえばアジサイですね!今はあちらこちらで咲いていてとても綺麗です。
アジサイの葉っぱはちょうどアマガエルが隠れるのにいい環境みたいで、少し探せば見つかります。
アジサイの花の語源は、一説に、藍色の花が集まる意味の「集真藍(あづさあい)」が変化したとも言われているそうですよ。


It's rainy season here now and that means Hydrangeas! Like giant pompoms, these colourful flowers are in full bloom everywhere right now and are a welcome sight in this humid and overcast season.
Hydrangeas, (Ajisai
アジサイ in Japanese) are native to Asia and so they love the humid weather.
Like many Japanese plants, their leaves have evolved to grow large and fast so they can soak up as much sun as possible during the rainy season.
These big juicy leaves are a smorgasbord for insects, and by the time the real summer arrives in August it is pretty much impossible to find a hydrangea leaf that hasn't been half eaten by some kind of hungry bug.
The frogs must know this because in nearly every hydrangea bush, there seem to be at least a dozen tiny frogs, hiding among the leaves, sleeping through the hot days and feeding and singing at night.
These 3cm long Japanese tree frogs (amagaeru
アマガエル) blend in perfectly to the hydrangea leaves, but if you look really carefully, you can usually find a few of them!
