Did a tour of Europe in June, including Monaco where we visited "Roseraie Princesse Grace". I am not a rose person (yet), but I was completely drawn to this beautiful garden and I took in every one of the 8,000 rose bushes and 300 different varieties. Our hotel room looked down over the garden, it was quite special.

Thanks for sharing.

I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

Wow! Thanks for sharing! (I'd probably have been arrested for taking cuttings from all 8,000 bushes!) Thank You! Thank You!
