Tracy Rose Garden

Today after visiting the library I walked over to the Tracy Rose Garden to take some pictures. It was not a long walk as it is right beside the library 🙂

Tracy California, Rose Garden, Garden ClubThe Rose Garden was dedicated in 1990 and was donated by the Tracy Community Garden Club.

Over the years I have really enjoyed walking through the rose garden as it has a lot of nice roses.

Tonight I will share a few of the pictures that I took today.

I really like this rose with pink and white petals.

It is nice to see the return of roses in the spring. Luckily, we have a long blooming season for roses. There are only a few months of the year when I don’t have roses blooming.

What type of rose should I add to my garden?
