Floria 2010 Putrajaya

Well, its that time of the year again...Yes Floria 2010 at Putrajaya. Running from July 10 - 18 2010, the theme for this year's exhibition is easy enough, being Heliconia. Not one of my favourite flowers, but showy enough and easy to grow and maintain. The exhibits this year includes various outdoor landscapes, garden displays as well as an indoor section with twilight garden (dark and a high chance of tripping over or being groped!) and floral arrangements. Not to be missed are the orchids on display, various stalls selling trees, plants, orchids, pitcher plants and garden necessities that would bowl you over if you like gardening. There are also food and handicraft stalls to complete the carnival atmosphere.
