Interesting , once here in Aminus I wrote the name of this flower in our language and he told it is the same in their .. ( not sure maybe Nepal )
Any way if I translate the name in English , it is paper flower
گل کاغذی
.. and what is yours ?

@farNaaz50: Yes farNaaz..In my native language we call this Kaagithappoo...which translates as Paper Flower:))
