My local rose garden, happily just one and half miles from my house, so I enjoy it frequently. These photos are from 7 a.m. this morning, with the garden half lit by sunlight and half still in shade. There were already two people there taking photographs--I'm sure theirs came out much better with their fancy camera. By the time I left, a half dozen more people were enjoying the fragrant, early morning coolness and stupendous beauty. I have four rosebushes in my yard, but I'd love to have even more.
