Around Kumonotaira

Although the Sieversia pentapetala and Phyllodoce caerulea are still forming communities in the distance, the Sieversia pentapetala have become cottony in most areas.
Mixed in among them are Potentilla matsumurae, Primula cuneifolia var. cuneifolia, Solidago virgaurea subsp. leiocarpa, and Gentiana nipponica.
Flowering seems to be ending for the Therorhodion camtschaticum on the peak and Bryanthus gmelinii near Ishimuro. The scene appears to be being set for autumn.
