Kusafuji are in bloom

Last week I went to Mt. Hakodate and walked down halfway and went up taking the trail for Senjojiki, a field located east of the highest peak. Then I took a trail to go back to the parking. On the way, kusafuji(草=grass 藤=wisteria) flowers are in full bloom. Its scientific name is vici a cracca.

Also I found many buds of Ooubayuri. Ooubayuri in kanji characters are 大姥(oouba)百合(yuri). 大姥 means "old woman" and 百合 is translated in English as lily. When they are in bloom, they lose leaves and a leaf in Japanese is a homonym of a tooth. The plants lose all their leaves(=teeth) when they are in bloom, hence they were named as mentioned.

Ooubayuri needs more than ten years to have flowers and after they bloom, they die out.

Now rugosa roses are in bloom. Usually, a flower has several petals as below,

but rugosas I found at Shikinomori Park near the Future University had a lot of petals. They seemed like roses.

Now you can find rugosas at various places, especially near coastal area. All smell sweet and my dog seems to like it, too.

Spring has come!/春が来た!

Today, I went to Mt. Hakodate to see spring flowers. I could find many spring flowers there while enjoying birds' twitter. Here are photos I took along the Miyanomori course, one of the mountain trails that is at the back of the Hakodate Hachimangu Shrine.

Blue flowers are Ezo-engosaku and yellows are Kibanano-amana. Both are edible. I don't know the name of White flowers.
