A Rose Garden - A Rainbow with Thorns

Saturday, June 13, 2015

I once had a rose named after me
and I was very flattered.
But I was not pleased to read
the description in the catalogue:
no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall.
- Eleanor Roosevelt
Who doesn't love roses?  Of all the flowers in a garden, the mighty rose stands proudly displaying its beautiful color and velvety petals, reproducing itself throughout the growing season.  Roses are a popular choice when it comes to showing affection towards a loved one.  Whether in a vase from a florist or decorating our gardens, roses are one of the most loved flowers.  

One of the best places to enjoy roses is at Schenectady's Rose Garden.  I found that out last year when I paid my first visit.  The Rose Garden is one of the local treasures that, even after spending my whole life in this area, I'd never visited.  If you haven't been there, I hope today's post encourages you to visit soon.  I did a post last year on my visit.....http://gwfirecracker.blogspot.com/2014/06/beauty-abounds-in-rose-garden-in.html so if you don't get enough roses in today's post, you can go to that post and see even more.  In that post, I share the history of the Rose Garden.  But for now.....here's a little of what awaits you at the Rose Garden!
 Can you believe that today, the Rose Garden is filled with over 4,000 rose bushes?

Gorgeous isn't it?  The Schenectady Rose Garden is located in Central Park at 500 Iroquois Path in Schenectady, NY.  It's filled with benches throughout the rose garden where you'll want to sit a spell and enjoy the scent and the view of this heavenly, colorful oasis.  I think after you visit, you'll go back year after year!  Thanks for visiting Life As I See It!  Come back again soon and if you don't want to miss a post - leave your email in the FOLLOW ME section in the column at the right.  I won't have your email, but my blogs will be delivered to your email each and every time!  Now go have a great day!
 One of the most tragic things I know about human nature
is that all of us tend to put off living.
We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over
the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are
blooming outside our windows today.
