One of the blessings of a mildly cooler climate is the lusciously beautiful flowers growing in plenty.
Ooty and Coonoor in the Nilgiris of Tamil Nadu state in India, fit into the said category.
The roses in the picture collage are in the Rose Garden in Ooty. Despite or because of the plentiful flowers, flower show and beauty, Ooty is desperately crowded.
While adjacent Coonoor is different. The hilly landscape is layered with beautifully manicured tea gardens.
One of the positive fallouts of large tea gardens is the absence of intimidating crowd. And that alone makes it a better place to enjoy the beauty of nature and the blessings of mild weather.
Too much of anything is usually not good. Same is the case with weather. The moment a mild deviates into extreme, life becomes hazardous.
Cold weather slows people down, like the hot weather. And it’s interesting to see how people react in either case.
Winter is managed with protection garments making people over clothed and uncomfortable.
Similarly in hot summer, people sleep with airconditioners on full blast and then hiding under thick blankets to avoid suffering of freezing temperatures.
We do well in adapting to what nature has to offer and appreciate the positives like these beautiful flowers.
