Flower show, a brilliant work of art

A Bangalorean visits the Lalbagh Flower show and finds much joy and photo ops.

I would like to share my joy and happiness on visiting the Lalbagh Flower Show organised by the Horticultural Department of Government of Karnataka.

Every year, they focus on a theme – this year the idea was to celebrate Republic Day and the 150th Birth Anniversary of Swami Vivekananda. The department has put in a great deal of hard work in the excellent arrangement of flowers, vegetables and potted plants.

The show was inaugurated on January 18th and is open till January 28th.

Feel free to share the pictures with your friends and relatives so that everybody enjoys the beauty of Mother Nature seen at Bangalore twice a year.

This year, there is a parking problem as no vehicles can enter the garden area. Visitors have to park their vehicles elsewhere and walk to the venue. Despite this, the visit is worth as such flower arrangements are rare. Congratulations to the Horticultural Department team for such a fantastic show.
