Reinsch Rose Garden (Part Two)

I spent lunch at the rose garden again. It was a perfect day--sparkling blue sky, just the right temperature.

The garden made me a little sad though. It's just messy--not in a wild, secret kind of way. In a neglected, unloved kind of way. Made me wish I could stay and weed and deadhead. But maybe everything seems a little more run-down when you're trying to navigate it in heels....

As you can see the roses are definitely blooming.

A Betty Boop Floribunda.

A Pink Meidiland Shrub.

And last, but not least, a comparison shot. I took this picture about 2 weeks ago--look how much more is in bloom now.
