Is this a fall offering at the shrine? I love the combination of potato and deep blue flower

神社で、ポテトとリンドウの花がとても秋らしいお供物だと思います。

This shrine offering seems the essence of fall. I’m probably off from the official symbolism, but the potato makes me think of warm soup and the tall blue rindou flower (scrabra in Latin) signals the start of fall.

This shrine, near Akebanabashi station, is wedged between a wide road and the Shuto elevated freeway.
