It's Vinayaka Chaturthi today but at home we kept it simpler than ever and there isn't much food to train the camera on, so here are some flowers instead!
I don't know what this is called but it looks like an orchid at close quarters. In reality, it's quite a small flower!
This creeper has followed us through the years, across homes. We were told the flower's name is Jooka Malli. It has a heady scent and always has some ants or other tiny insects running in and out.
Another of those nostalgic favourites that we don't seem to see in big cities anymore! The scent can perfume a room in minutes and give you a headache as well! It's growing wild and blooming in abundance in my aunt's house.
That's a small cluster of the orchid-like flower above.
This is a popular in many homes nowadays. I think of it as a modern flower because I didn't see this growing up, have only seen this in the last few years.
This pink hibiscus keeps the yellow and red ones company. As you can see, it's a beautiful, clear - and hot! - day.
I don't know what this is called either, but I loved the colour.
