Flower Show at Lalbagh Botanical Garden

This year’s Republic Day National Flower Festival being held at Lalbagh Botanical garden. The 203rd edition of the event will be held from January 16 to February 26. It will mark the 150th birth anniversary of Gustav Hermann Krumbiegel and the birth centenary of Dr. M.H. Marigowda, both renowned horticulturists. The participants from Karnataka and other States like Goa, Maharashtra and several from the North East, are expected to showcase their native flowers.

We went there few days back on a morning walk. I didn’t find this year’s show very attractive compared to previous years… here are the pics.


Morning Walk at Lalbagh Botanical Garden

We went for a morning walk – rather very late – today to our very own Lalbagh Botanical garden. The kids were attending tuition and we had just about one hour make our morning walk happen.

Lalbagh is a tourist spot for those who visit Bangalore. The main attraction various types of trees and plants and of course the flower shows it organizes on the Republic day. We went there after a gap of at least one year. Noticed several improvements… of late the garden has been in the local news quite frequently for all the wrong news though…
