It was a very pretty and quiet place set in a rather industrial area. Large nicely kept lawns and a beautiful pale pink rose arbor over the brick pathway. The roses on it were pretty much finished, but I could imagine the effect when they were fully in bloom!

Dave was in his glory, as you might know. He followed his nose from rose to rose searching for the most fragrant one. He's always disappointed but he keeps trying. The most beautiful looking roses rarely have any fragrance.
You can see him in these pictures, he's the one with the rose colored shirt bending over the flowers.....
And lest you think that roses were the only flowers in the garden, I give you an artichoke!
Oh, and as an aside to this post, Dave did find a rose to meet his expectations. It was the last bloom on a bush directly behind Beluga here in Bandon. He brought it in and its fragrance still fills the air - even now that it is obviously very dead......
I guess this experiment was a success! This blog took me only about 10 minutes to put together. Now, do I want to burn sunshine sitting inside working on a blog or do I want to take hours in the evening?
