A Feast For The Eyes — Everyone’s Invited!!

The following are some pics from theΒ  Chrysanthemum Show held every year in December in Chandigarh. For me this annual show is definitely one of the major attractions of life in this city. I for one never even knew that chrysanthemums came in such a variety of shapes and sizes before I attended this show for the first time in 2009!

Take a look at these gorgeous blooms on display in the show held last month.

IMG_3221Green! Yes, green!

    Every one of them is lovely! I wish I had seen this show during the years we spent in Chandigarh 😦

    • So you too have lived in Chandigarh–isn’t it a lovely city, Zephyr? Too bad my stay here is drawing to a close–we will be shifting in a couple of months to Mumbai…
      This show has been taking place only since the last decade, I am told, so if you were here before that, you didn’t miss anything!

  2. So many beautiful blooms! I like the white cauliflower-size one! πŸ™‚
