I attended the Republic Day flower show at Lalbagh Gardens about a week ago. The conservatory was filled with groupings of plants (roses in one corner, orchids in another) and featured flower sculptures. This year’s theme was “fruits & vegetables”, so there were giant mangoes and carrots and eggplants made with mums and carnation etc. These had faces and hands reaching out… Frankly, they were a little creepy.
The best parts were the gardening and handicraft stalls– I got some basil & rosemary plants, some faux flowers made of wood shavings.
There were also vendors that made for interesting people watching
