Flowers from Nilgiris

 The Botanical Gardens at Ooty in the Nilgiris has flowers from both tropical and temperate lands. When I visited the garden last Tuesday, I was overwhelmed by the variety and beauty of the flowers there. The Melastoma shown above, is a tropical plant.

 Azelias, which we never get to see in our hot climes, is blooming profusely there.


The Peruvian lily Alstroemeria  has many colours.
Thisis my contribution to Nick's Floral Friday.

  12. I've been to India just once, and that was Ooty! My disappointment was not being able to see the Botanical Garden, but I've cruised the lake, saw the Rose Garden and the Horticulture garden. I also love the tea plantations.
