Neapolitan Rainy Day by celesse Neapolitan Rainy Day by celesse
I never understood why most Japanese art of rainy scenes have these flowers in them. I finally looked it up and found out that hydrangeas have come to symbolize the rainy season in Japan and are even a tourist attraction. They help brighten up the otherwise gloomy atmosphere. It's sort of like how the cherry blossom trees symbolize spring.

They really are beautiful flowers, especially since they can be gradients of purple-blue-pink all on the same bush. I found lots of gorgeous images when seeking reference.

Tan, Poli and Nea, from left to right, the Neapolitan triplets.

I just love this picture. I've always loved the triplets, and well, umbrellas. Your colouring here seems like it has a more storybook-effect to it for some reason...

I hope there was a wallpaper version of this :iconkissingplz:

Very Cute! Are you gonna make products with these cuties? Because I would buy them if you did. X3

I wish I had a picture of it, but at my college they had several bushes of hydrangeas along one building. All were a very pretty purple except one tiny clump of flowers; those ones were bright blue. XD I thought they made a mistake when planting until I looked up the plant.
