A PINKY CANDLE ON THE RAIN

This is my old fashion collection, a wild plant but so lovely.
We call it as 'Boroco' or 'Kembang Lilin' (Celosia argentea).
Look ... this is mine in my front garden.



It grows so easy and also so fast.
There are two version, the green and red leaves, but the color of their flower are similar.
You can see they grow so healthy side by side on the road side.



They grow so well during the beginning of the dry season, yea... the best season for this plant.



In the beginning of the rainy season, the new plants from self sowing grow so wild so rapidly.
Look... they look so beautiful on the road side.



We can find them grow wildly with the pinky-white color like candles in the rain. 


These flower make the country road looks more beautiful.
So lovely...
