Rose Weekend

The third weekend of June is always Elizabeth Park's Rose Weekend.  Many roses are at peak.


 The arches leading to the gaze are usually covered with rose vines, but in recent years they
became spindly.  So, the vines have been cut back.  Give them two or three more years.


The garden is popular for prom, engagement and wedding pictures and for wedding ceremonies.



I came before the big crowds, so I don't have many people in some of these photos.



 Returning later, people filled the rose garden.

A feast for the eyes and pleasant odors for the nose.

I always look forward to your "Elizabeth" photos. How wonderful to have this beautiful place to enjoy and photograph. Don't ever skip it because, if you do, I will be sad, esp during peak blossoming periods.

Sitting here looking at all of these beautiful roses I'm wondering if the air was full of the that sweet rosey fragrance. What a wonderful sight to see all these roses all blooming at the same time.

Beautiful, Jack. And especially welcome this year when our English roses are brown and battered from heavy rains.

That is a special place, Jack!

Truly beautiful. Roses are rather out of fashion here but I love them.

This is such a glorious place! (Our neighborhood deer would believe they'd died an gone to heaven if they came upon this spot.)
