The Rose Garden

If I remember correctly, the rose garden is right behind hedge in back of the dahlia bed, but you have to follow a path to get to one of the two entrances. This image shows only a small portion of the rose garden: it's essentially round and the two people in the distance are near the center. You can just make out the matching arches at the far end.

Notice the variety of foliage on the large trees in the background. I've concentrated on the flowers, but the Botanic Garden has many other wonders.

This rose is Grand Masterpiece. I didn't do justice to the rose garden here, partly because I was feeling the effects of a flu bug and partly because they had been somewhat tatered by several days of high winds: While the beds were still brilliant, many blossoms did not look all that impressive in the viewfinder. Fortunately we ran across an even more spectatular rose garden in Wellington a few weeks later.
