Gallivanting and Roses

We have a beautiful heritage rose garden at Beverley Park. We were there this morning but only a few of the roses are out. None the less it is a place of quiet beauty.

    My rambling and climbing roses would love an archway like this to grow on–so lovely. Today, my dear son begged me to allow him to prune the parts of them making it a hazard for him to mow the lawn. It looks better now. An archway is in my future plans now for the one that’s making it difficult to enter the garden shed.

    You are so right, it is so appropriate for a first post! An archway and a path. And the post is so typical of the beauty of your posts: finding the wonder in our daily lives, reminding us that there is enchantment and nature everywhere. I love it!

    quite symbolical for the first post. an open green gate! what lies behind? a labyrinth (preferably the one with the goblin king)? a castle? a hidden magic country? who knows! 🙂

      Hidden Magic Country, I think! But what is so strange is that I just took that picture without thinking about any symbolism. And yet I couldn’t have taken, or posted, a better picture for my first blog post. Magic!

    Your park sounds beautiful. I love places of quiet beauty too. I recently discovered a local burial ground which has heirloom and heritage roses. I took lots of photos and posted about them.
