If you travel through Kerala, especially towns or villages, you will come across floral decorations(pookkalam) on the roadside, almost at every junction. Onam adds colors of happiness!
Today is Onam Day 3.(06Sep2016)
On the way back from jogging, my son and myself could get a bunch of red bougainvillea. Do you know bougainvillea is not common on the floral decorations at all! But, away from Kerala, that is not the case 😉
Also, we took a few white bougainvillea from our garden as well. We were lucky to get those few! Though, those are not really preferred on floral decorations, after putting, we felt, the red and white bougainvillea added beauty to today’s floral decoration. They could blend well with the variety of Shanghupushpam(Butterfly Pea Flower / Healing Plant) and hibiscus petals….
Yes, every flower adds…every color adds…!
Enjoy colorful days of Onam…. 🙂
