Stop and smell the roses

I took a walk through Red Butte Garden this morning, and was overwhelmed by the roses.

I especially loved the pink and yellow of these roses:

And the next ones were really unusual – sort of lavender on the outer petals, and pale orange/yellow on the inner petals:


There were some spectacular red ones that almost looked more like Bougainvillea until you got up close, but my photo didn’t come out well at all. Maybe on my next trip I’ll get a better one.

    The rose garden must be amazing right now. I tried to go last night, but there was a concert. 😦 Maybe I can make it up later today as I’d love to see the roses! Your shots are wonderful.
