Good morning everyone-These is another group of pictures from my visit to Hershey Gardens. When I read that Hershey Gardens started out as a 3.5 acres rose garden I understand why and the rose garden was the first thing you see as you come into the gardens. One of the things that struck me was the number of seniors that were there working in the gardens.
Many hands make light work and as beautiful and large of an area that just the roses took up I am sure that it is a LOT of work to keep everything looking nice. I am envious of just the roses in this garden. I have planted many roses in my garden and have lost a lot of them and the others I have are no where near as big and nice as all of these were.
The best ones I have are the knockout roses and the Robin Hood roses. I truly wish all mine were as nice as my knockouts. I am not sure what I might have done differently but it has been a disappointment as the ones I have ordered are supposedly very beautiful but you wouldn't know it by looking at them. NO more roses for this kid.
The only thing that would have been nicer with these pics would have been if the roses themselves had been better close ups but I wanted to show you the size of the rose garden and in doing so lost the close up look. Of course it doesn't help when I can't see so well when I am taking the pictures. Oh well hope you like them just the same.
