The Empress Garden


The landscaping was good and the evening light was perfect to capture this. 


Every time when I enter the Empress Garden (in Pune) I am in awe of this structure which must have been standing there for more than a century 



and so are these tall trees that are standing as a mute witness to all that is happening around it 


The flower show and the sale of the Garden items that is held every year had something unique this time and that is the landscaping of the place by Dr Krishna Chavan. Liked his concept of “Love Green Live Green”


One can’t miss the lavish spread of green with splashes of colourful flowers.


The perfect background  for selfie seekers. 





For a minute I thought that these are real flamingos   


There were other activities too like flower show competition and Bonsai display






This was organised by the Agri-Horticulture Society of Western India. You can have a glimpse of everything in this short video.
I was told that the exhibition and the sale will continue till 27th of January.

Empress Garden was always this mysterious place that woke up from its slumber during flower shows. Looking at it from a different perspective after reading your blog....you said it right..... mute witness to the centuries gone by.... Fantastic writeup. - Anna Krishnan
