〜Celosias  個性派〜

We often see celosias at flower shops and roadside around this time of year.  As a child, however, I was less fond of it just because of its rather individualistic shape, I thought, was a little scary.  Just as the haiku says what come after its season are wind and snow, making the plant a symbol of the end of fall.
