Having a holiday in Sri Lanka is always enjoyable. This is the time of the year that we enjoy time with our family members and friends. Other than spending time with family members, I also get time to spend among natural views of Sri Lanka.
I just started my Sri Lanka holiday. It is raining here. However, I have enough flower captures to share. As always this is the time I spend among flowers and flower photography.
Below are some white flowers I captured during these days. While sharing travel experiences and travel tips through this blog, I also like to document the flowers I find in Sri Lanka.
Wathusudda (Tabernaemontana divaricata, pinwheel flower) is a common flower found in Sri Lankan home gardens. These flowers can be found easily throughout the year. Other English names for Wathusudda : Pinwheel flower, Pinwheel jasmine, Crape Jasmine
With beautiful blooms and fresh flowers that cover the wathusudda plant, these flowers make pleasant views for any home. In Sri Lanka, it is also used for offerings for Buddha. Also, it is good for simple decorations.
Below is another type of wathusudda that is easy to find in Sri Lanka.The petals of these flowers are thicker than the common type of wathusudda which I shared above.
