SOOC Roses


This is part of the rose park I visited earlier this week.  In the middle is a fountain, and you can see a few other folks strolling through the paths, enjoying the multitude of rose varieties.


I think peach and orange are my favorite color of rose, although really, they are all so beautiful in their own way.


Some buds/blossoms were individual, while others bloomed in bunches.  I really liked the contrast of the pink against the bright blue sky.

Several of them were two toned, this was 2 layers of purple, while the ones below were red on one side of the petal and white on the other.

Throughout the park, there are labels for each type of rose and for whom it was named.  
All of these photos are straight out of the camera (a bit of cropping, and 1 watermark on this last one).
