False Yellowhead

Found these False Yellowhead seeds during my evening walk.

Patiently waiting
on the branches of death
to drift away.

False Yellowhead has an astringent smell which most people find unpleasant.

Here goes the adage

My dear one, don’t fall in love with any woman who only has good looks, she is like a false yellowhead flower: beautiful, but full of stench.

What a piece of advice! It is credited as Catalan.
