5 Feb is Basant Panchmi, the festival to mark the transition from winter into the spring season 🌼 which culminates with the Holi celebrations exactly 40 days from this day ie on 17 March (a holiday! 😌). The traditional colour for Basant Panchmi is yellow and the flower for the festivities has to be the Yellow Jamanthi (Marigold)
The above flowers were store bought, we have a few Jamanthi plants around the apartment complex, bearing yellow and orange flowers.
The bigger the jamanthi flower, the more joy it seems to radiate. The bright colours are bold and beautiful. The flowers remain fresh in bloom for a few days 💛
Till next post, take care !!
