Lose yourself in nature's beauty

Lose yourself in nature's beauty

Myriad hues were on display at the Sports Complex of Delhi University when the 56th Annual Flower Show at Antardhvani opened to public along with the three-day annual cultural festival of the University. The atmosphere was electric as students went about trying to get the best click with the blooming flowers while photography enthusiasts were on roll at the sight of this panoramic display. 

Culled from the University garden and colleges like Miranda House, Zakir Husain and Shri Ram College of Commerce, the flower show had everything from foliage to common winter flowers, bonsai, cactus and succulents that made up for an enchanting visual treat. Colourful flowers arranged in a classy fashion attracted plenty of lenses. The show had some common varieties of flowers like Tropaeolum (Garden Nasturtium), Mimulus (Monkey Flower), Nigella (Love in Mist) Aster, Prachycome (Swan River Daisy), Gerbera, Phlox, Verbena and Ranunculus. What attracted the students most were the vibrant varieties of Lilian flower in red, orange and yellow. Apparently, students were waiting for their turn to get the picture clicked with the bouquet of flowers.

Farhan, a second year student of Chemistry (Hons), St Stephen’s College says that it is a golden opportunity to see so many colourful flowers at one place. “Not only was it pleasing to the eye, it was a balm for the soul. The flower show is a treat for those who are interested in gardening, and I am one amongst them.”

Interestingly, the flower show as a part of ‘Antardhvani’, provides a great platform to the university to honour its team of horticulturists who have been working hard to keep the colleges green and scenic. Therefore, the participating colleges also showcase the best of the lot. Zakir Husain College displayed African Daisy, Swan River Daisy, Snapdragon, Gerbera, Petunia and foliage plants. Their collection of Dahilas won the first prize.

Likewise, flowers from Gwyer Hall presented a riot of colours. The highly commended flowers from Gwyer Hall were Mesembryanthemum and Dianthus Pink. From Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) marigold won the first prize, Dianthus and Salvia the second prize and Golden African Daisy third prize. SRCC also displayed a collection of cactus plants in full bloom and a few bonsai plants.
