I was excited to come across these flowers a few weeks ago. They are called Cockscomb, because they look like the comb of a rooster. Alternative names are Brain Celosia, because it resembles a brightly colored brain, and Woolflower. They grow like a weed and require almost no care. They are furry like chenille fabric, and believe it or not, people eat them. The leaves and flowers are often eaten as a vegetable in India, West Africa, South America, and China. It is eaten quite a bit in Nigeria as their main leafy vegetable, where it's name is Soko Yokoto, meaning "make husband fat and happy". I do not think Phil would be happy if I served him this as a side dish. And I don't think I could choke down those furry flowers, even smothered in ranch dressing. Here's something that Psalm 119;103 says tastes very good.
"How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! I gain understanding from your precepts; therefore I hate every wrong path."
