Autumn Sakura

cosmosliterally translated, the kanji for cosmos reads ‘autumn sakura,’ as their blooming peak signals the arrival of autumn and their petals resemble that of its namesake flower.  there are brown blooms with a chocolate scent, orange and yellow ones that can be used for natural dyeing and pretty variegated versions too, but these pink and red-violet ones are still my very favorites.

「秋」と「桜」と書いて、コスモス。そう言われれば!と納得できる名前です。チョコレートの香りをする茶色のコスモスや草木染に使えるオレンジ色や黄色のコスモス、それにツートーンのお花もあるけれど、やっぱりこのピンクと赤紫が一番のお気に入りです。
