Blessing of Hokkaido's Nature ③

This is a picture of Mizubasyo: Lysichiton camtschatcense or Asian Skunk Cabbage, taken near Lake Abashiri. As the name shows, it looks like a cabbage.
We were driving on Route 39 to get fresh seafood products such as crabs, Atka mackerels, scallops etc. Abashiri is one of famous production centers of marine products in Japan.

My mother taught me where Mizubasyo grew in colonies on our way to Abashiri.

It was chilly and was drizzling, however we found many people taking pics of Mizubasyo here and there. It was at the most admirable to look at Mizubasyo in Abashiri district in the early of May. It was really beautiful and a great view.

I was into taking pictures of it ^^
