LALBAGH FLOWER SHOW


Lalbagh Flower show is well publicized and attracts lot of crowd...... and the usual problems of vehicle parking and walking space...... still we decided to visit the place, since Sathisha and family from Hunsur were with us.  After going round Lalbagh a couple of rounds, and finally found a parking place on the fifth floor of Shantinagar Bus Stand, from there, it is short walking distance. Parking is Rs.40 and entrance is Rs 40 per person. 
The flower show is inside the glass house in the park. The amazing thing is people rushing and pushing for seeing the flower arrangement and to take photos. There was constant announcement over the PA system that people should move fast and should not stand....... to enable the massive crowd to see the show..... Any way we were able to get out within half an hour, after taking some pictures.
Every year on Independence Day and Republic day, flower shows are organized at the Lal Bagh Botanical Garden. Organized by the Horticultural Society of Mysore with an cost of over Rs 35 lakhs, this flower show has been one of the most awaited events in the Garden City, Bangalore.

The flower show showcases several varieties of potted plants and cut flowers, but the main attraction are the flora replicas, Ikebana, Jannur, Indian Floral Art, Bonsai, Thai Art,  and vegetable carving. This year, too, the flower show at Lal Bagh created magic with beautiful and breathtaking floral replicas and arrangements comprising of nearly 673 genera and 1,854 species of plants from all over Karnataka.
