One was this tailorbird that we identified with the help of the book later.
New additions included a Great tit who posed quite well for the camera. Supposedly they look for crunching insects on leaves – that is what he/she is doing here.
Complete list of birds is there on the birds page.
On the flower show itself, we dint find it great or interesting. They had supposedly spent 1 crore on decorating the place (eyes rolling!!). Inside the glass house was an array of flowers and some of them were shaped to entertain children. But nothing worth seeing! L
One good aspect was the gardening supply stalls present near the glass house. I guess about 25 shops would have made good business that day. They showed us how to use some items in home gardening – hydroponics, vermi-compost, compost, coco-peat. The enthusiasts in us ended up buying 2 huge cubes of coco-peat and were struggling to carry it around. We also bought some grow bags and vermin-compost. Here is a new one we bought – its long and we are planning to use it for radish and palak.
Update on Sunday:
Be careful of your estimation of coco-peat size! That one cube bloated and became enough to fill about 4 grow bags (about 15 L each) and we have used them for around 8 huge pots. We were told that mixture of coco-peat and compost is enough to grow plants – it does make the pot lighter. We mixed 20% red sand since we already had them in our pots. Our pots look happy and are responding well.
