A season of flowers

August is a month of flowers when the sepia leaves shed and the fresh flowers bloom. Every year, the horticulture department organize the Flower Show at Lalbagh twice an year at Bangalore. Once during the Republic Day and Independence Day. The Flower Show was open to the public on Saturday noon from 3pm onwards.

Lalbagh is a well-known botanical garden. This time, they have come up with their own website for the Flower show: http://lalbagh.org/ . The Flower Show is open till August 17th from 9am - 6pm. The entrance ticket is Rs 30. The ticket e-booking facility is available here and the route map here.   

I have been a regular visitor to Lalbagh during the Flower Shows. Last year, it was Taj Mahal. I was here, today morning at 7am. Though, it was drizzling in the morning, I was able to capture the lovely flowers many of which I don't know the names.
