The annual Putrajaya Flower and Garden Festival known as Floria opened to the public today and continues until Sunday 22nd June 2014.
Its location has shifted slightly this year to a new permanent site in the shadow of Putrajaya’s famous Seri Saujana bridge. The organizers have introduced an entrance fee for the first time (previously free) but it is only RM3 (RM1 for children) and unlikely to deter the hordes of visitors.
The King of Malaysia attended the opening ceremony and here a couple of fine vehicles from the Royal cavalcade.
There is plenty of creativity on display and many of the show gardens make good use of unusual materials such as plastic bags (above left) and other recycled materials.
The largest indoor pavilion showcases installations by professional designers and international exhibits from the region and beyond such as these (below) from Kunming China and Germany.
The horticultural bazaar and handicraft market is bigger and better this year.
