Photography Monday: The Huntington’s Roses Part III

The Huntington’s Rose Garden includes important parent roses, roses from prominent hybridizers, and rose cultivars from around the world that grow exceedingly well in Southern California.  The garden has been redesigned many times over the years with major plantings in 1922, 1945, 1973, 1982 and 1988.

Many ruffled petals of pink loveliness!
