The Essence of Beauty

This week, I visited the Bicentennial Rose Garden one of the many Gardens at The Norfolk Botanical Garden, and a favorite of mine, "where over 3,000 rose plants representing more than 300 varieties grow. 
At the height of bloom, mid-May through October, more than 250,000 rose blooms may be seen."

Here are a few of those blooms!

Then the LORD God planted a garden in Eden in the east, and there he placed the man he had made.” ~ Genesis 2:8

These are beautiful, Merle. Yellow roses were my grandmother's favorite. I like the slide show you added to your blog, too. Nice feature. I always enjoy sitting here in "your" garden, but I should get to the botanical garden sometime to experience it live!
