Cute floral replicas of veggies and fruits greet visitors to the Republic Day Flower Show at the Glass House in Lal Bagh. They are a hit with children!
I just loved Miss Garlic with her blue-tinted, pink-rimmed glasses and pink-shaded lips. If there was a prize for the best-looking gal at the Flower Show I am sure Miss Garlic would be the runaway winner.
A close second in a medley of colours is pretty Miss Pineapple. And she has her hands spread as if to say, “Gimme a hug :)”. Awww! If it weren’t for the fence I am sure she would have got a zillion hugs.
Miss Banana in her yellow robe looks cool and is drawing a lot of attention too!
Miss Carrot is overwhelmed with all the attention she is receiving!
Watch out! Naughty boy Coconut is at his mischievous best.
Songstress Miss Mango seems to be singing, “When you are happy and you know it clap your hands…”
And dancing to Miss Mango’s tunes is Miss Pomegranate. “Oh la la….”
Poor Mr Cashew Apple looks all lost!
The rabbit looks oh-so-cute with her cart of fruits and vegetables.
Standing tall amongst all fruits and veggies is this majestic floral tower.
A picture of poise are the floral mushrooms.
These are floral depictions of Amorphophallus Titanum, the largest flower in the world (left), and the carnivorous plant Nepenthes Lowii (right).
Visitors to the flower show coming from the Double Road gate of Lal Bagh would have first been greeted by the farmer and his wife with a lot of produce in their hands.
This huge floral vase in the Bonsai Garden looks striking.
Like always the roses are the cynosure of all attention. There are so many of them in vivid colours and you can smell them from afar.
The yellow marigolds looked dazzling as they bathed in bright sunlight.
And there are a lot of other flowers too! I was lost amidst all this floral grandeur! I am sure you will be too when you visit this spectacular extravaganza. The show is on till 26 January. Do not miss!
