After an enforced hiatus, caused by a malingering PC, I really have not got back into the swing of writing for the blog. But these beauties are just right to break the spell, and here I am.
The Celosias here are from Gardenia’s garden (photographs by Gardenia). They look and feel like velvet, (click on pictures to enlarge) and are also called cockscomb, because they look like the crest of a rooster. An appropriate word for them.
The dictionary definition of cockscomb is : a vain, showy fellow; a conceited, silly man, fond of display. Equally applicable!
