Blooming Friday/Flowers From The Hornbill Festival






My last post had nothing to do with blooms, or gardening
for that matter, but I was coming to that. It was just that
I had to wait till Blooming Friday to post these pictures:)
Every year there's an amazing display of flowers at the
Hornbill Festival and I told my husband to take
as manypictures!! These are the images he got for me.
I love them all!!



There's something wrong with the formatting now but
I hope you click on the pictures. To see what's blooming
around the world, please visit Katarina's Roses and Stuff.


I don't know the names of the orchids but I hope you
enjoy viewing the anthuriums, the roses, liliums, and
the bougainvillea. And of course, the succulents and
the poinsettias.

That's a lovely series of blooms. I was trying to pick a favorite, but couldn't.

Lovely flowers! Hope you'll see that I have led with a hornbill in my latest post, taken just before I left India.

They're gorgeous, Kanak! I missed the last flower festival held in summer this year in Chennai. Your beautiful shots reminds me of it.

Shailaja said...

Simply gorgeous, every one of them; but it was the begonia which took my breath away!

Sujata said...

The Lavender orchids and the pink blooms in last pic are absolutely lovely. All the flowers are so beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Those orchids are remarkable! So many flowers and the colors so pretty. I like how they arranged those anthuriums. Such a wonderful festival :-)

Eye candy for the starved! Beautiful Kanak kudos to your hubby for taking taking the photos and for carrying out your instructions :-) I bet that you are not going to miss the next festival.

Carol said...

A fantastic display of colour and bloom!

HelenJ said...

Really lovely flowers, and beautiful arrangements. Especially the orchids are gorgeous...

Mildred said...

The colors are so striking in these pictures. A welcome sight since everything here is drab from the freezing temps. Atlanta, Georgia has a flower show in January - maybe I can share some pictures from there. I hope you and your family have a blessed weekend Kanak.

Your hubby did a great job. Stunning pictures of lovely flowers. Almost new for me.

fairegarden said...

Oh Kanak, give hubby a special big hug from us! He did a wonderful job. It is so heartwarming to see the beautiful blooms at this time of year especially! And my most favorite orchid, the paph was well represented, wow to the number of flowers on the one plant. We get excited if there are two on ours. Well we get excited about a lot of things, but you know what I mean. :-)

I love those orchids. The North East is famous for them. I liked the Peruvian lilies too. Have a nice weekend!

Susie said...

How nice hubbie took the photos for you. There so many lovely blooms. I'm growing an anthurium for the first time. I picked it up this summer for a dollar at Lowe's. So far it has done good. Not real big yet but I'm still happy with it.

Nell Jean said...

All beautiful blooms. Anthuriums are my current fav, maybe because this is my first year to grow one.

easygardener said...

A riot of colour - I could happily take a few of those plants home with me :-)
Have a good weekend.

Wendy said...

What a nice place to visit! I'd love to take some of those home too!! Lovely plants. Lovely colours.

Kanak Hagjer said...

So happy to hear from all of you...thank you so much!! And i'm sure with all these appreciative comments, there'll be more photos to share from Hubs:-)

Wish you all a wonderful weekend!

Autumn Belle said...

Kanak, I am so happy that you have shared this lovely festival of flowers with us. I do enjoy flower shows. The lily and rose arrangement looks like a valentine bouquet that I'd like to take home. I'd like to take home all the orchids too. The coral orchid in the last picture is so demure and pretty.

Andrea said...

You got beautiful orchids in that show. It is just a bit hot that most colors are somewhat faded. I specifically love the profuse flowers of the Paphiopedillum. I feel like posting the photos from last years nearby garden show! Thanks Kanak.

Kanak Hagjer said...

Autumn Belle, had I been there I'd have noted down the names...wish I knew...I agree that the coral colour is lovely!


Andrea, I'd love to see the garden show photos that you've mentioned. Thanks for stopping by...love that you were here!!

Sunita said...

Kanak, its so lovely seeing all those heart-stopping blooms. Especially the orchids. I wish I could attend at least one of these festivals. They seem to be really my kind of event.
