Flower power at the Rani Baug
Byculla- In this city that's always on the run, do any of us stop to smell the flowers?
The BMC last week put up an interesting show that made citizens pause a while and enjoy the posies. At the 22nd edition of the 'Flower Show', organised by the BMC's Tree Authority, a vast range of flora was on display at the Rani Baug gardens from 13th January to 15th January.
The garden was decorated with roses, water lilies, zinnia, verbena, dianthus and many more flowers. Along with this, there was a separate space for exotic vegetables which had zucchini, broccoli, red cabbage, lettuce and many more veggies on the show. There were fruits as well - mangoes, guava, jackfruit and many others were on display. Social causes like the ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ and ‘Save Tree’ campaigns were also visible here.
Many gardening items were also put on sale along with the medicinal herb plants. These included medicinal herbs such as ‘Insulin’ which is good for diabetic patients.Many garden lovers were given expert tips on how to create vertical gardens in less space available in the city.
Flowers and trees are an important part of our life and we should nurture them.
