Garden Festival

by - 2/26/2014

While February is coming to an end, the woes associated with summers are going to begin. There is hardly any spring in Delhi. We basically have two seasons, extreme summers and cold winters. Anyways, march happens to be comfortable most of the time; pleasantly cool only if the Delhi sun happens to shine a bit less vehemently :)

The best part of February according to me are the fresh blooms everywhere!! The choicest of flowers are seen encroaching every piece of land you can lay your eyes upon!! Sadly, these flowers began to wither as soon as the temperature begins to rise. Therefore, all the hard work people put up in harvesting such colourful blooms are rewarded in this month itself. Yes, by rewards I mean the various flower shows where people with green thumbs can exhibit their hard work proudly!!

Every year for the past 27 years, Delhi tourism is organising a Garden festival in the sprawling Garden of five senses. Year by year this festival is getting bigger. This year, the theme was Vertical Garden. Apart from the flowers in various types of display, I love the fact that one can buy all sorts of plants, seeds and everything related to gardening from these places!!

The venue was quite far from our place; and the decision to pay a visit was an impromptu one. Hubby had a symposium in the daytime. So I tagged along; sitting in an orthopaedic symposium can be daunting as there are no females in the entire orthopaedic community!! So I was the only XXgene sitting inside the hall!! When we reached the garden, I was already tired from the lectures. But the ordeal was yet to begin. Being Sunday, the place was overtly crowded. And the real adventure began when we began to explore the entire area on foot. We covered as much as the time limit would permit; physical endurance is never a criteria when my husband is my accompaint (which he is most of the time ). Anyways our eyes had an ultimate feast savouring the gorgeous flora :)
