“Flower like a wave”

On a sunny early summer day, some purple flowers were blooming on the edge of the woods.  The Japanese skullcaps is called “Tatsunami-sou”. Tatsunami means that the waves are rising. It was named after the shape of a bubbling wave-like flower. There are many similar species.  [JUNE 2021]
