FOTD: Celosia

I always thought of this flower as “flame flower” because I didn’t know its real name. I’ve seen these in many places. I have since found out that it is called celosia, in the amaranth family, and the red version is sometimes called “forest fire.” So I was close. In tribute to fall, in sympathy with the victims of the California wildfires, and participating in Cee’s Flower of the Day, here is a yellow celosia from the Public Gardens of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Yellow and red celosias were used to make swirly designs that looked like snakes. (More on that in a future post.)SONY DSC
