Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden and the Roses

Some Photos of the Roses as they are at their peak blooming period now.   On my way to the rose garden, there are other plants and trees in bloom, like this Kousa dogwood, loaded with flowers.

Creative designs with plantings

I have this plant in a vibrant pink, but this is the first time I have seen one with white flowers

One of my favorites here - Portulaca
They will bloom all summer and like the hot weather

The Rose Garden , with lovely stone structure
The scent from the Roses filled the air

 spent blooms are clipped down to the 3 leaves on the stem
Some couples have their wedding in the rose garden
which means that someone is always tending them 

Crossing the bridge to the Childrens area , we saw these Glass Sculptures in the water
You can see their reflections


  1. Your photos are so beautiful I could almost smell the roses!! Lovely blog.
