More than 400 different shades and plain natural colored embroidery threads have been used to create artificially made flowers that remain fresh for a long long time.

That first photo is what looks a bit natural for me, but the rest looks artificial. I have been to Ooty and i love the tea gardens on the way up. Besides, i went to the rose garden for the sunrise shot with my Indian companion found at the conference. The Botanical Garden is also lovely. I enjoyed my stay in Ooty.

Amazing craftsmanship - I just hope that this never has to replace the real thing!
