Lalbagh Flower Show - January 2012

As always, the Republic Day Flower Show (Lalbagh) is attracting thousands of people. What's new this year? Hmm... The lovely Stupa made of flowers, sand sculpture, and exotic flowers from other parts of the world. We tend to get a sneak peek of the flower show during our morning walks. Unfortunately, we could not see the Ikebana section and the sand sculpture because both sections were closed for public during early hours of the morning. 

What did I purchase? Well, I bought only one plant - Cycas - small one. Have to plant it in a bigger container with better soil. For once, I did not feel tempted to purchase more plants; probably, because I need to straighten up the unkempt terrace garden, and then think of expanding the garden. It's taken two weekends to clean, prune, spray pesticide, and replant and arrange the plants. The terrace garden seems to be bouncing back to life. :-)

Uploaded a few photos of the Flower Show.
