Rose Garden

Petal A.
Overnight rain will do wonders for the Rose Garden.
The roses are looking magnificent.
Volunteers deadheading the blooms.
First stage of deadheading is to cut to the first leaf consisting of 5 leaves
As time goes on during Summer, we cut further down the stem.
One of the avenues. The garden is designed in the shape of the English Tudor Rose. There are 4 shaped petals with the small rotunda in the centre.
At the top of the garden is the Bud which consists of David Austin Roses and at the side is the leaf shaped rose garden.
If those in Melbourne have an interest in Roses, it is well worth a visit.
