Photo Journal: Cock-a-doodle-bloom


In this recent photo, red and yellow cockscomb flowers reach their peak at Showa Kinen Park spanning the Tokyo suburban cities of Tachikawa and Akishima. The cockscomb belongs to the family Amaranthaceae, and blooms annually to the delight of visitors. The plant gets its name from the shape of the flower, which resembles the comb of a rooster. Some 20,000 cockscombs were planted in the park within a space of about 850 square meters. The blossoms can be enjoyed until mid-October. (Mainichi)
