After the Pond Tour, The Rose Garden

After seeing a bunch of ponds and realizing that they are all a lot of work, Berb decided she would like to go the Renish Rose Garden in Gage Park. Instead of sitting in the car, decided that is was such a beautiful day I would get out and enjoy the park.

I saw this single red rose against the Kansas Sky and just couldn't resist.

This single pink rose just stood out in the sun and for only one flower, it did its best to look good and smell good doing it.

Being a sucker for crowds, these red roses were mighty pretty there together.

These were so yellow when the opened and then faded to a pinkish yellow after a day or so.

Right in the middle of the Rose Garden there is a water feature with one of the prettiest flowers against those big green lilly pads. Not one frog to be heard or seen.



  1. Beautiful! I like the water lily and the pinkish yellow rose best. If we're talking roses, though, wild roses are my favorite. Climbing roses gone wild come close, though. I don't like anything too manicured.

  3. For a basic topiary design to add to your formal garden, try using techniques to coax smooth curves in your hedges, helping the shape of your garden to flow. Or, if you still have something that's got a lot of right angles and corners, start growing shapes at the corners to add decoration; think of the ornaments you see at the corners on fancy staircases and molding in structural Garden design.
    By incorporating topiary into your formal garden design, you can take basic lines and create art, all adding up to a good-looking, green space in your home.
