Garden City in Full Bloom - 3 July 2012

FLORIA 2012 - the Flower & Garden Festival is an annual event in Putrajaya. The theme of this year's event is Bougainvillea - Enduring Beauty. This place is always full of fresh, creative ideas and inspiring designs even for home gardeners like us. And most of all, it educates.

The nightly floral parade accompanied by fireworks display.....

There were a total of 15 floats cruising along the Putrajaya Lake. The best view was to watch from the Millenium Monument, overlooking the Seri Wawasan Bridge, the landmark of Putrajaya city. We also learnt our lesson - we visited the show on a weekday so we could take our time to enjoy the show and the gardens.

The flower & garden show looked different in the morning......

The Grand Flower Bed - which is the centrepiece to the event - in full bloom. Besides, there were also a floral pavillion, showcase gardens by various organisations, garden bazaar, art square and other activities to spice up the show.

On a weekday morning, we saw mainly school children visiting the place, indeed it would be good if more school children could be there. Ming has a fun time getting to know the flowers, and especially to see so much vibrancy in the display of colours and creativity.

Ming burst into energy playing with his new friends at the inflatable football pitch.
