|The flower shop!|
programme of interaction was organised.
Upon our arrival in Bangalore, All 4 of us
picked our flowers from a wholesale outlet on our way to Lal Bagh where we were to meet the Bangalore Chapter members. I cannot convey to all of you the awe and joy at seeing the abundance of colourful flowers! Not only were the buckets full of colourful flowers, there were
bunches on the floor waiting to be placed and another van of flowers was waiting outside to unload. You can imagine what a variety we had to choose from as they were half the price we pay for them herein Chennai!
We did 4 free style arrangements.
