The Magical Tulips. Smt Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden

Monday, 2 April 2012

Many years ago, my late father presented me picked a red tulip from our garden. He said " If you look at this flower, it is so complex yet so simple. It is what life is all about". While I have written many things about the dark side of Asia, I thought it was time to feature something created by nature. 

It is Spring, a beautiful season where the some of the world is splashed with colours. It is also my favourite season. In England, the land is coloured in yellow daffodils. Over in the other side of the world, we see  Asia's largest tulip garden was featured in the Indian Express sometime ago. 

"Although the tulips are yet to reach full bloom, the floriculture department has planted 20 lakh bulbs over an area of 12 hectares with eight new varieties of the flower added this year"

 Perched on the foothills of Zabrawan range between Nishat Bagh and Cheshmeshahi Moghul gardens, the Tulips of Kashmir have stretched the tourist season to two months

This is Smt Indira Gandhi Memorial Tulip Garden located on the foot hills of Zabrawan Mountains. The name of the city is Srinagar, India. I am so grateful for the above beautiful pictures taken by a very nice guy I met on Facebook  known to me as  "Bhai". Anyway, I wanted to share these beautiful pictures with everyone.

NB. Thankyou so much to "Bhai" who knows I just love flower pictures!
