We'll set the scene with a photo of some of the beds (below left) which were adjacent to where we first gathered (below right) for an early evening snack enjoyed by a mingling of master gardeners and rose gardeners. Notice the handsome "Rose Garden" sign in the lower-left of the second photo.
The next photo shows how well positioned the large rose bed is in the overall context of the gardens.
And now for a closer look at the roses themselves, with Laveryne introducing us to the various rose varieties. There were an awful lot of blooms for late August, so congratulations are due to the master gardeners for their dedication to the roses.
