**************************************************

     Over 700 students from 24 schools, in showing their co-operative and team spirit, joined hands to put up the spectacular mosaiculture display "Animals in Concert" at Victoria Park today (February 26).

     The display features a group of lively animals from the forest and fields and creatures of the sea, singing, dancing and playing instruments. The adorable animals include a giraffe, octopus, frog, rabbit and cat. It will be exhibited in the coming Hong Kong Flower Show to be held from March 11 to 20.

     The display is embellished with over 30,000 colourful flowering plants of various species, including Kalanchoe, Carnation, Marigold, Impatiens, Begonia, Cuphea, Myosotis Sylvatica, creating a colourful and joyful concert. Some of the plant sculptures are designed with movable parts, adding motion to the spectacular display. The lively music also fills the scene with festive joy.
