Flower Beds

Flowers beds like these are a common sight along the roads and roundabouts here in Dubai, as part of the local municipality's efforts to make the city green with palm trees, shrubs and flowers. With all the towering buildings and the construction works all around (which never seems to end by the way), it is nice to see how these attractive flowers add a soft and natural touch to a bustling city like Dubai.

Check out other interesting purple entries at PhotoHunt, see beautiful flower blossoms at Today's Flowers and get a glimpse of other people's world at My World Tuesday.

  5. The street plantations in the Middle East are often spectacular although water is scarce. In Oman they used grey water to great advantage.
    You feature a magical display of Petunias so well.

  8. I think Dubai is really doing a good job in veering towards beautification and tourism in case the future holds for less dependence on oil.
