David Austen Rose Garden

In addition to the weekend shopping chores Mr C and I factored in a lunchtime visit to David Austin Roses where we hoped to find a rose or two for the next stage of our garden project. On arrival we wandered around the sales area to see what roses were available to buy. Then we headed to the cafe for a sandwich which we enjoyed sitting outside in the sunshine.

After lunch we wandered around the gardens to see the displays of roses in different settings. The display of roses was spectacular so we found it difficult to settle on just one or two; eventually we plumped for Olivia Rose Austin and Lady Emma Hamilton. I have some other roses in mind to continue on with our garden project.

The weather remained kind so we were able to enjoy our evening meal; ginger and orange baked salmon with a glass of Rose wine on the patio. As we lingered after the meal the sun started to set proving an almost rainbow like glow in the sky.

    What a gorgeous place for lunch, and that last photo is almost magical.

      It was a special place for lunch. I am so happy that my photo of the evening sky worked and I was able to share what I saw as the sun was setting :-)

  2. This rose garden reminded me of the Alhambra in Spain!

  3. Several shots of shades of perfection, CP.

  4. What a beautiful place to visit – I think we passed it on our way to see Morville Dower House Gardens. Would love more roses in our garden we have so few.
