It was March 9th on my last visit, Valentines appears to be a month long celebration.
Various and random items have been decorated with flowers, trains, cars, bicycles, horse and carriage and a windmill, there doesn't appear to be a theme.
A house, windmill and the Burj Khalifa have been constructed out of oranges and lemons. I have no idea why, there was no information available and it was all made from artificial fruit with big chunks missing out the structure.
The secret to the successful planting is keeping the plants in their pots and not directly planting into the sand.
I will continue to visit the miracle gardens throughout the year until it gets too hot, as there aren't many places in Dubai with this much colour and life in them.
Nice to see so much colour in Dubai. That ceiling with all the purple flowers in hanging baskets is really impressive. Were many of the flowers scented? If they were, I imagine that would smell pretty amazing in the heat of the sun.ReplyDelete
most of the flowers are scented but not highlyDelete
Wow - so much colour! Bet it was a very uplifting place to be #HDYGGReplyDelete
I really enjoy wandering around the gardensDelete
So much colour and there less is definitely not more!ReplyDelete
I'm always amazed at how they get everything to grow so well despite the heat - they must use sooooo much water.
Thanks for bringing the colour to us all!
you're welcome, all the flowers are planted in individual pots which i assume reduces the water consumptionDelete
Lol!! Someone wanted to keep the love theme much longer :)ReplyDelete
there's christmas and halloween stuff back out in the shops, no idea whyDelete
It is a bit full on isn't it? Still it must be nice to see so much colour before the heat becomes too much. It must be like a reverse winter.ReplyDelete
it closes in summer as it gets too hot and they start the planning to reopen in DecemberDelete
WOW!!!!! what a feast for the eyes! i would be there forever....ReplyDelete
i've made many visits and i'm sure there will be quite a few more to comeDelete
Gosh it's absolutely wild - I mean wild with colour! Even if over the top I think it's fabulous that they're displaying so many flowers and more to show what a difference colour and nature can make in a landscape even when they're buildings made of oranges and lemons.ReplyDelete
it is pretty amazing what they've down out thereDelete
