Bright shades greeted all at Lalbagh as the botanical garden hosted the annual Republic Day flower show, which ended on January 26.

There was a variety of flower structures in the shapes of fruits and vegetables like mango, pineapple, cashew apple, carrot and mushroom. The show left an impression on everyone especially the international visitors.

Visitors from Germany, Isabell and Christoph, said that it was an amazing experience to see a variety of flowers in such a style. “They looked so funny and it was a totally a different experience for foreigners,” said Isabell. Christoph added that they had come to Lalbagh around two weeks back and had seen things being set up then. “I never knew that the end-product would be so good. It’s a great achievement,” he said.

Most foreign visitors were excited about the vibrant variety of flowers. Michael Lewis, from London, felt that the flower structures would bring a smile on anyone’s face. “It was an educational experience and the place is great for a family to relax and enjoy,” said Michael. He added that as an outsider, he was delighted to see Indians enjoying themselves.

Ingreid, who hails from Germany, said that this was a “must-do” for everybody. “It’s a beautiful effort and it’s nice to see how well it has been managed. The crowd is moving smoothly,” she said.

A group of youngsters from Ukraine were thoroughly impressed with the show. Olya, one of the members, said that though the space was a bit stuffy, the show was worth it. “There are too many people inside. This does affect the experience but the effort is just amazing,” she voiced.

Danil, another member, added, “The show was a very different and an awesome experience. I have never seen such exotic flowers earlier.”

Like many visitors, Barry, a visitor from the United Kingdom, was a bit lost about the location of the plants.

“There is no doubt that the show was spellbinding. The colours were highly appreciable. But I wish there was a map explaining what was displayed where. That would have made things easier for the visitors,” shared Barry.

He added that he was floored by the show and was glad that he was visiting the country during the show.
