The flower show in Bangalore Lalbagh gardens started last week. Over the weekend, having nothing else to do, we went over to click them. I mean the flowers. Yes, photography has been getting on my nerves every time I see my photographs and the experiments. 😉
To those residing in Bangalore from a quite long time, this flower show may not be a new thing. I have been to other flower shows too, like in Thiruvananthapuram at Kerala, but flowers are always refreshing.
The entry fee is maximum Rs.40/- for adults. I saw huge numbers like Rs.150 and Rs.200 in the price listing for the car parking, though I am not sure, whether its true! Thankfully, we went on bike which can be easily parked for just Rs.5! There was no special fees for camera, which provided great opportunity for many photographers. There were tripods, and huge big, wide, or whatever lenses stuck near the huge varieties of flowers.
The colors are vibrant, beautiful and uplifting. Though the show is mainly in the Glass House inside the gardens, there are so many stalls and small featured rose gardens etc which we gave a miss. After all, we had been roaming around in there for about 2 hours from 11am to 1pm! The crowd was still huge even at those odd hours. There was various flower arrangements including a “no war, only peace” kinda flower arrangement which made me think that the authorities are very clever in keeping up with the current trends and the latest talk.
This flower show is on till January 26, 2009. And with the 3 day holiday coming up along with it is going to just increase the rush more.
Few more pictures from my side before I wrap up for today! 😉
