Lal bagh [the botanical garden] in the heart of the Bangalore city organizes and showcases this beautiful flower show twice a year, in the month of January and August with exclusive and exotic flowers, plants and floral decorations. During these days it attracts hundreds and thousands of people from all the over the country and abroad also to view this unique event in the glass-house premise. Though it is any sketchers' paradise to do live sketching of these beautiful flowers, its actually impossible to do so because of the pack crowd. even photographers have hardly any place to get a good angle :)! I happened to visit Lal bagh last Thursday and to my surprise this Eiffel Tower made of thousands of of white and red roses with some green leaves still stood there from the exhibition even after it has ended few days earlier. though the flowers have dried up and changed their color, it was still the best thing to sketch there that day with much less crowd. however I was interrupted many times as i was surrounded by group of visiting students in that sketching session, but that's a part of experience for any on location sketching and painting :)!
