After we entered in to the Government Botanical Garden, Ooty, the first thing which attracted me was the flower aeroplane.

The Flower Aeroplane:
It was a fabulous (Extremely pleasing) experience when I saw the Aeroplane Completely decorated by fresh flowers. It was artistically decorated decorated with white roses, red roses and light yellow roses. As a finishing touch, the one who decorated this plane kept a letter “F” in the tail portion of the plane.

Everybody who came to the flower show has taken a photo in front of the flower aeroplane model. Those who don’t have a own camera were helped by the mobile photographers. They were busy in taking instant photographs of the visitors.

The garden was filled with people from different countries, states and cities. Lots of police (men and women) where standing and watching the peoples movement. Almost all of them were very helpful to the public. In between their work some lady constables were helping each others by taking photos using their mobile cameras. Most of the kids and adults were rolled on the grass slopes. You could see those video here.

We had our lunch at a church. We had Rice, sambar, and an egg. Then we visited the Lake. But because of the time constrain and over crowded counters we give up going boating. But we had coffee and snacks there. We returned to the school and had dinner. We slept in the bench bed (we arranged the benches as stage and latter used as bed) .
