Return to the Rose Garden

A saw the movie Letters to Juliet. It isn't a Hallmark movie, or even a Disney movie, although it certainly could be. And it should definitely be sponsored by Kleenex!

I haven't made it to Verona, Italy yet, so I do not have any of those photos for you. But keeping in the spirit of eternal love and Shakespeare, here are some lovely roses.

This garden smells as good as it looks. There are hundreds of varieties, colors, and shapes.

Admittedly, not a great photo, but I wanted to show you the multicolored blooms all from the same bush.

By far, one of my favorite shots. This and the peach close up at the beginning are on the way to becoming greeting cards. A fantastic way for me to combine my hobbies. I imagine it will find it's way to a frame as well. Heaven knows my office could use some color!

The rows feel like they go on forever. I like how the colors just blend into the distance.

I really enjoy the group roses. I realize that these are not available as commonly, especially in retail outlets, but the whole handful of happiness just adds something to the garden!

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet". - (Act II, Scene II Romeo and Juliet).
