rose garden at Roger Williams

As promised here's half of the photos from Roger Williams Park. I separated them into rose garden and surrounding hibiscus {which will be coming soon}. 

I love that no matter which park you are in in Providence the benches are all the same.

The lichen on this one is quite divine.

The garden is a quaint courtyard enclosed by lovely trellises. 

It seems to be an escape within the park itself. 

There are still some roses in bloom.

Though I'm not much of a fan of roses this was a pretty garden.

If it hadn't been raining I would have been upset I didn't bring a book and blanket.

It's the perfect Sunday picnic spot.

I plan on returning in the winter, I'm betting it's pretty with a dusting of snow.

There were subtly colored roses in pale peach,

vibrant, deep pink, 

and palest yellow.

It was lovely to be consumed by them. Low lying bushes sprawled up towering trellises. 

And each flower had a just a few drops of rain on their petals and leaves.

When the heat remains low for a while this will be another of our picnic spots. I'm looking forward to some sunday fundays with low temperatures and less pain in my future.

happy tuesday!
