We popped in to Wisley about an hour before it closed for the weekend. It was perfect as we could park almost right by the front door, there were only a few visitors around, we had the play area to ourselves and, more importantly, we got to smell the roses before they withered for the year!
I took photos of the ones that had the most delicious perfume but, with the clock ticking, there was no time to take note of their names!
Some of them were past their prime but were still beautiful.
The scattered petals were collected for a batch of homemade perfume.
I really liked the design of the benches in the Rose Garden and, once I'd dried my tears from reading the memorial messages, took loads of photos of those too.
