    This is a beautiful rose. I love the color and form.

    To answer your question about April in Paris. It tolerates the heat fairly well, but we’re up on the Plateau where temperatures rarely get above the mid-80s.

    Thank you again for visiting my blog post today about the Rose Garden at Swarthmore College! It is so nice to meet you. Your photos are so beautiful! I love taking photos of flowers, animals, and scenery. My photos are not always great, but they are full of love!

    Chris, thank you for stopping by my blog and ‘liking’ my post. Always good to see new faces on the scene. COL…I have to chuckle, because as I’m looking at Barbara’s roses I’m thinking “these are spectacular blooms” (and I haven’t used that word in a while), and then I scroll down I see you’ve used it to describe them, too. And they certainly are.
