My Favorite Roses at Sturgeon Memorial Garden

What is there not to love about a rose: the bright, happy colors, the muted pinks to creamy ivories, the musky perfumes of old roses, the dreamy layers of petals, Every one is an artist's dream. Who would guess that I would find it in Florida, which is supposed to be too humid for roses? 

Here are some of my best photographs:
