Roses on our Travels

Having lived in this area called Gippsland for only a few years we love a little drive around on a Saturday or Sunday to explore what natural or un natural for that matter, treasures we can find.

We took a drive north and near town called Toongabbie, we found a rose garden that was open to the public. Now I am very partial to a
look at somebody elses’ roses and so was delighted to find old and new favourites of this particular plant.

Graham Thomas a David Austin rose, probably the most pure yellow of the Austins.

and the strong gr owing white 'Lamarque" climbing a pergola

The town itself had this particularly quaint cricket ground with surrounding buildings and so provided an interesting visit in itself.
