THE ROSE GARDEN

We have an arboretum nearby and I visited their rose garden today, alas I was a few weeks too late cos of the hot and dry weather we have been having the last 2 months but I enjoyed it never the less. I really wish I could sent you the smell of the roses , the buzz of the bees and the sound of the birds ! This arboretum has tree’s, shrubs and plants from all over the world and they get busloads of tourists but today it was as if it was my private garden.

SOME OF THEM STILL HAD LOADS OF BUDS

I will definitely go back more often as they had so many other beautiful plants and trees and there are always exhibitions in the garden outside as well as inside.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your garden !
