As promised, pics from our outing to the gardens. I didn't know this but apparently this garden is one of the oldest in the country, and is a test garden for AARS. So some of the pics are "test" roses, which I thought were absolutely lovely!
The poor rose keepers though, there were a lot of Japanese Beetles in attendance! If only I'd had my gloves with me I would have squished a bunch for them.
My favorites are the lavender roses... they smell heavenly! Here are just a few of the pics; the full set is in my photo gallery.
