A Visit to the Community Rose Garden

Yesterday I went to the library for curbside pickup of a couple books I had requested. While there I decided to take a walk through the community rose garden.

The rose garden is right beside the library and I will often visit it when I pick up or return books.

I like this bunch of pink roses.

In any case it has good petal formation and is very pretty.

This visit along with the fact that my sister planted some rose bushes is making me think of planting some new roses. It is maybe too late this year, but I can always start thinking of which varieties to plant.

Do you have a community rose garden where you live?
