Floria 2010

Again, wave of natural beauty swept Putrajaya, with hundred thousands of plants. Just this time, less flowers, but better gardening and designs. Held on 11-17 July 2010, same location, about the same time and same weather, the differences, the designs and themes.

Floria 2010, with sea of flowers, enriched Putrajaya with wave of nature. These photos shows the flower power at the main entrance of the exhibition. Instead of on the second last day, we went to the exhibition early this year, on the forth day. The flowers there looked vitally fresh, greatly contrasted the lushly green leaves.

Creative design, by putting a red star-shaped polygon at the middle of yellowish flowers.

Flowers with various colours at one of the wooden observation stand.

Orchid garden, one of the highlights in the exhibition.

Our photo at another side of the orchid garden.

Orchid on sales. Lured by the great display at the orchid garden, these orchids should be the red hot targets of the visitors.

One good thing that we didn't found from the previous Floria-the bonsai displays.

Indoor display: animals shaped floral displays, with strong Malaysian endogenous identity (left); The Prince and The Frog (right).

Orang Utan and Rafflesia were the highlights of the rain forest in Malaysia. The floral display themed animals and flowers of rain forest in Malaysia was the first runner up of the indoor floral design competition. 

Unlike previous Floria 2009, the exhibitors for Floria 2010 had prepared nice places for photo taking, backgrounding one of the dazzling Putrajaya bridges. This photo was taken by putting the camera on a bench nearby the lake, with 10 seconds timer on. Two ladies on our right are Livien and Kelly.

As we had talked a lot in our blog on Floria 2009 last year, so, we decided to put in more photos and talk less in Floria 2010. We hope you enjoy our blog. You are most welcomed to visit our blogs on other attraction in Putrajaya, such as Agriculture Heritage Park, Botanical Garden, and Ministry Precinct.
