I've just been on a visit to Ooty, located in the Nilgiris in Tamil Nadu, India. While there I just had to visit the Rose Garden. Unfortunately I just missed the annual flower show, but there were still many beautiful roses to see.

Not all the varieties were labelled, but this was. It's 'Royal Amethyst', and had a heavenly scent.

Yes it was lovely. Every so often we'd stop and breathe in the scent. And the air is very lovely up there anyway.

Hi there!
Greetings from Singapore!
I had to include this one - it's named after the river from which I get my name! Pity it looks a little sickly.
