Golden Trumpet Vine (Allamanda cathartica)
These beautiful yellow flowers are blooming around our home. We commonly called them Ruk Aththana flower. One evening I began to crochet this flower and it came up nicely as same as Ruk Aththana (Golden Trumpet). Finally, I could get a nice photo with the real Golden Trumpet and with my crocheted flower together.
