The correct answer is: Bird of Paradise flower. As you can see, these girls are standing next to several of these flowers. Agutaynens in general like to have flowers in their yards. Common flowers would be orchids, Easter lilies, and more. For the Agutaynens, flowers aren’t just for the beautification of one’s yard. If you would like to know why else they put these flowers in their yards, just send us an email and we will share that with you.
Let’s give you another try. Here is another clip for you to guess what it is.
