More than the roses, I was amused by the location. It is on one cliff with altitude of 2.2km overlooking the light grey clouds trying to kiss those tall tress and a petty town.

Present day Rose garden, Ooty harbors 20,000 varieties of roses.
There are roses in every imaginable size , color and names too. Some were almost half my head. The person(s) who chose names for different species might be very creative, some very eccentric kind of names were seen.
The names like ‘Jayalalitha’ were really surprising.
