  4. Great pics, I felt so nostalgic & all the memories of the B'lore trip we had taken when I was younger, came back to me.
    The glasshouse looks exactly as in m y memories, then again how much will that change :) but there were no flowers, not so many anyway, when we had been there & so it was great to see them!

  5. Bhagyashri you are right the glass house is not the same on regular days. This is on the occasion of our Independence day that the flower festival is organized. I think they do it around the republic day time too. Good the picture took you down the memory lane.

    I was just checking your profile and loved the title of your blog " If it is not happy ...it is not the end"

  6. Yea, you're right...flowers are always pretty in B'lore. But try comparing our Lalbag's Ganpati to any other Lalbag... :)
