WW: Queen Elizabeth Rose at Elizabethan Gardens

"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

There weren't many roses left in late September at Elizabethan Gardens, but I did find one named after Queen Elizabeth that had a few bright petals left. I'm not sure what type of pink rose is in the third photograph, but I liked how the wall framed it.

  7. How in the world did they tolerate those Elizabethan ruffs? I think I would loose my mind if I couldn't move my head because of my clothing.

  10. Roses remind me of growing up in rural NZ, not many of them here in the sub tropical state of Queensland!

  19. Gee I was really in a rush on the weekend and totally forgot to comment on the photos. beautiful bokeh in that first rose shot and the framing is great in the last but it's hard to focus on them because I keep getting distracted by Liz's fab gown.
