The royal road being quite crowded with elephants, horses, chariots and foot soldiers, the women climbed to the top of their houses, where they caught sight of Lord Kṛṣṇa and His queens. The city ladies scattered flowers upon the Lord, embraced Him in their minds and expressed their heartfelt welcome with broadly smiling glances.
Śrīla Śrīdhara Svāmī comments that the ladies communicated through their affectionate glances, their eager inquiries as to the comfort of Lord Kṛṣṇa's trip, and so on. In other words, in their ecstasy they intensely desired to serve the Lord.
