Wow beautiful. I remember, visiting the flower show once from college. What makes you crazy is the sweet smell and the burst of colors around you. The photos had not done justice to the show since I feel there would have more colorful scenes there.

Thank you for the nice post. It makes me feel nostalgic ...

Hi Raj :)
le orchidee sono dei fiori meravigliosi... vederli mi porta ad un immagine di mondi fatati, di folletti, di donne indiane meravigliose e spirituali !
Mi piace comperarli ogni tanto ( in Italia costano molto )e metterne uno colorato in un vasetto sopra al camino di casa mia.
Buona giornata :)
Bye Myriam

Wonderful flowers and they bloom for such a long time.

Orchids have always been thought as special here. In high school, for example, one generally gave an orchid corsage to one's date for the school prom.

They are gorgeous.

Leovi said...

That preciousness of orchids!

Arija said...

They are totally lovely. That is the one orchid which I have admired for a long time, especially those that have a perfume, unfortunately they are not easy to come by where we live.

Aren't the Phalanopsis so beautiful. I have a collection of 5 and they can produced such loveleness. Would they be a plant that grows naturally in India or as a houseplant like here?

Remember my days in Bangalore and brought a tear to my eyes.

Loved the garden my Aunt used to tend so very gently.

She would win the first prize in the contest, for the large garden.

Now we are in Mumbai and that house is sold , but this post brought back memories of the fun time :) we had together at the Lalbagh Flower Show.
