On the slopes of Pechersk Landscape Park in Kiev from 22 August till 1 September was held the traditional annual 54 Kiev flower exhibition timed to the Independence Day of Ukraine. In 2009, the theme of this exhibition was “Fairy Tales of the Peoples of the World”. At the same time there was an exhibition of flower clock, within the bounds of which there was held the competition in floristics - 10 florists competed in creating the most original flower clock. At the same time Office of Greenery of Kiev set the flower clock on the Independence Square, which claims to become the largest in the world.
Comparing to 2008, the compositions of the traditional Kiev landscape exhibition were even more beautiful and interesting. At the exhibition there were created 10 flower expositions, which plunged visitors into a bright world of childhood. For the exhibition guests the masters of landscape design presented a diverse array of flower compositions with the famous Ukrainian fairy heroes: "Golden Key", "Frog Princess," "The Little Mermaid" and "Thumbelina," "Cat Leopold," "Scarlet Sails", "The Little Prince "," Doctor Aibolit "and others.
Over 100 specialists worked at each section of the exhibition. In addition to participation in the exhibition were invited students of Kiev Children Academy of Arts, whose works were also presented at the event. Exhibits for the exhibition were created about 2 months and there were used about 2 million different species of plants for this. Generally, these were stunted flowering and ornamental plants. Skillfully selected flowers in compositions with close planting to each other created the impression of the amazing solid velvet floral carpet.
During the exhibition were held also free masterclasses in floristics. Besides, visitors could see the art project "Frame in Space." This unique installation has also been demonstrated in Marseilles (France) in September, but the authors and organizers of the project have decided to present it at first to the Ukrainian audience and dedicate it to the celebration of Independence Day of Ukraine.
