“Wetland flowers”

When I visited the wetland, small flowers such as a ”Mimikaki-gusa” were almost over. Then, I found a long spike of white flowers in the grass. It was “Nogi-ran.” Ran means orchid, but it’s not a member of the orchid family. The orange stamens growing out of the white flowers were beautiful.  [AUGUST 2021]
