mountain vegetables (sansai)



Kinda peaceful. Some mountain vegetables someone had left
on what was left of a newly felled tree. The curves of the
tree trunk, and of the ubo (the name of the vegetable) entranced me.

Hi fantasy-jane - I cannot describe their taste at the moment - it is not as strong as an onion, but yes they do grow wild - the top parts are used in the flavourings, but I guess the stalk is as well.

They are Irises in the background. The park is famous for them. I'll take some photos when they come out! :)
