One of the flowers I see in abundance around here is plumeria/frangipani or champa. It has a nice fragrance and I love to keep a few flowers floating in water in the house. It leaves me smiling everytime i see them..
I had a plant of plumeria in our Delhi home but before it bloomed we had the relocation happening. One of the neighbors however were delighted to take that plant home. I hope its giving flowers by now.
I had written about this lucky bamboo that i got from a chinese market here, Dragon Mart. One of the stick started withering so i had to untie them and then I put them in a different vase. From the reading that i did on the net, i understand that if u want it to grow, it should be kept in dark.
Direct sunlight is not good for the lucky bamboo... So I moved it to the bathroom and there its growing nicely.. Every stick has got 2-3 shoots..
I recently took a picture of these bamboos and those flowers together, from a different angle.
You can call it the flickr effect ;)
