Rose Gardens From Around The World
Don't you just love wandering around an unfamiliar rose garden, in high summer? A riot of colors and scents, and new rose varieties to admire and photograph. I always take my digital camera, you just never know when the "perfect" shot will present itself.
Often, the smaller and relatively unknown gardens are more enjoyable that the larger city gardens. Less people for a start. True, there is generally a smaller collection of roses, but that is not always the case.
Take a look at the gardens presented here. They maybe from small towns and cities, but don't let that fool you - they still have much to offer the rose enthusiast.
Trevor Griffiths Rose Garden, Timaru, New Zealand
Located at Caroline Bay, Timaru, this is a favorite haunt during the summer months.
Gardens Of The Rose
I visited this garden during a visit to the UK in 1988. It was stunning back then, and by all accounts it has improved since. This is some information that I found while searching for rose gardens on the internet. Be sure to read the hummingbird guide for more information on the hummingbird, a common sight in gardens!
Australian Inland Botanic Gardens
Located near the Murray river, and the NSW southern border, is the "Australian Inland Botanic Gardens". Definitely worth a look, if you happen to be in that area. The slideshow is a selection of roses and scenic shots taken over the 2008-2009 summer season.
The city of roses has a massive test garden that has hundreds of varieties. I visited there in June 2011.
A follow up visit to Portland in July 2012, with more pictures.
A really great garden in St. Louis. They have great roses, Japenese, fruit, herbs, and many other types of plants.
Not really a garden, but its an annual show in Chicago that shows many cool types of gardens and flowers.
