山寺のオサバフウロ

誰かに触れられるとすぐに葉を畳んでしまう、微笑の花。

初めてこの花を見た時は名前も知らなかった。

ただ、これの名前はバタフライフラワーじゃないかな・・と思った。

ブログの友達から名前を教えてもらった。日本での名前は「オサバフウロ」だと・・

後で調べてみたら韓国での名前は「サランチョ」だった。

とにかく、

植物が動くというのは何か珍しいことだ。

There are flowers that are called "Sarangcho".

These flowers have five pink petals and three purple leaves.

They are not colorful but they have a simple beauty.

When I first saw these flowers, I thought about the name " Is this the butterfly flower?"

Because the three leaves seemed like butterfly's wings.

But my guess was wrong.Their name was "Sarangcho".  Sarangcho means "grass of love"

I don't know why the Sarangcho is called the grass of love.

The interesting thing is, these flowers have the unique trait that the leaves shrink If somebody touches them.

So I made new name for this flower. It's "shy smile".
