The first Onam together after a four year hiatus got me wondering what design to put for the Onam pookalam. Finally, on my sister's advice we tried something different. This is how it looked in the end. Arun pooled in with his ideas of placing the green and was my edupidi(poor him). He trimmed and destalked the flowers to do the pookalam.
Making the Onam sadhya(lunch) and putting the flowers, it took me six hours. I am slow I have to accept.
