Photography Monday: The Huntington’s Roses Part IV

The rose labels displayed near each rose contain three pieces of important information: cultivar name, horticultural class and date of introduction or when the cultivar was first sold.

Roses, roses everywhere!

Roses, roses everywhere!

What a beautiful color combination!

These roses are fun and vibrant.

Lushness and beauty for all to enjoy!

We enjoyed reading the labels and were quite entertained by the rose names.  If you are ever in the area, you must make a trip to The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens.  You won’t be disappointed and most probably will kick yourself for not making the trip sooner.  Hope you enjoyed the tour!

But friendship is the breathing rose, with sweets in every fold.  -Oliver Wendell Holmes
