Brightening Up Baghdad

Baghdad's not the first place that comes to mind when someone says "flower show," but that's exactly what's taking place in Zora park in the Iraqi capital. The theme of the International Festival of Flowers is "Baghdad: Flower of Civilizations," and its organizers say they hope it will raise environmental awareness among city residents. In addition to flowers, the show is also showcasing ornamental plants, seeds, and different agriculture methods. (RFE/RL's Radio Free Iraq)
