In March of this year I went to see the flower show in Noida, north India.Every year a flower show is held in Noida - this year it was from the 10th-12th of March 2012. So,come along and let me show you around...
A bull is sculpted out of flowers in the picture above.
Look at this huge arrangement of flowers of various kinds.
Now,here's a real big dahlia,fresh as can be.
These flowers in a pavilion in the pic above were being judged by a panel of experts when we went and so only a quick pic was possible.The winners were judged during the show ,which lasted from the 10th-12th of March. and their names declared on little cards hung on the plants they grew.
The vast grounds were the flower show was organized.Apart from the flowers on display,there were also plants for sale,interesting plant holders in the shape of birds and animals in various poses,bonsai - and the local school kids gave a spirited performance-clad in traditional costumes they danced to folk music,while some danced to the latest bollywood songs.In the picture below is an old bonsai plant(banyan tree )-150 years.
And...to match the occasion...well,what better way than to do up your hair in the form of flowers! These kids are awaiting their turn to perform on stage,dressed in traditional attire.
The flower show was well attended and everyone had their bit of fun in the sun.Stalls made good business,visitors went around the grounds admiring the flowers on show there,stopping now and again to grab a bite from the food stalls or to purchase something from the flower show.
And I came across this plant design...looks more like the roots were designed to grow a certain way making the plant more attractive.What do you think? In the end it was a lovely sunday spent with family at the flower show.
