The award winning dahlias



Some dahlia trivia from the flowers of india site: Dahlias are native from Mexico into Columbia and were hybridized by the Aztecs.

Heavenly Dahlias





I love how the dahlia buds look - like little lanterns, waiting to glow!

Flower show at Lalbagh

-In celebration of Independence Day, Lalbagh is hosting its bi-annual flower show. I will be posting images from the show later this month, but for now here is the centerpiece - the India Gate made of roses.

I'm not a big one for flower arrangements, I'd rather see a flower on a plant than off it, so i went to Lalbagh a bit apprehensively; it was a delight though, as most of the items on display were potted plants rather than flower arrangements. Never before have i learnt the names of so many flowers in so little time!! To see all of them, click on the 'lalbagh gardens' tag below this post.
