Flora at Kodaikanal

We visited Kodaikanal during the year-end (2011) holidays. Kodaikanal is a popular hill station in the state of Tamil Nadu. Passion fruits, plums, pears, and peaches are some of the fruits grown at Kodaikanal. By mid January, the plum trees will be covered with the flowers. Can you imagine acres of plum orchards covered with pretty White flowers?

Potatoes, cabbages (green and purple), cauliflower, carrots, knol khol, radish, kohirabi, and lima beans are a few vegetables that are grown. A variety of spices is also available; see http://www.kodaispicescorner.com/spices.html. Soft-wood trees cover the hills. Lakes and waterfalls abound. In short, this hill station is a slice of heaven (, which is accessible to us).

This blog is dedicated to the flora at Kodaikanal; shared a few photos.
