Garden of the Rose

1pt.gif (86 bytes)For a rose lover, you would think you had died and gone to rose heaven here...over 30,000 roses in bloom - outstanding! We had one registrant who was not into roses and she took the opportunity to visit St. Albans (once an ancient Roman city). Everyone was happy! As you can see by the pictures, it was an incredible experience to be surrounded by so many different types of roses ... can you smell them?

The garden will take up 6 acres. There are also plans for two other major gardens in honour of the Queen and the Queen Mother.
