Luther's Garden

Man does not live by bread alone, even me. Hope you enjoy these photos of Luther Burbank's garden as much as I enjoyed touring it.

The yellow rose was wonderfully lemon-scented. The streaky rose was delightfully named - George Burns. The poppy was actually the deepest, richest indigo color in the inside that you can possibly imagine - sad that it doesn't show so well in the photo.

Happy Summer.

Stunning! I may try to do some watercolors of those roses but I could not hope to rival your glowing photos. The Burbank garden is now another place "across the bridge" that I never heard of but simply must visit.

That yellow rose is perfection

I miss roses, it's too humid to grow them happily here. We had an abundance at our old place, every colour possible I think. The smell in summer *sigh*

Nancy, you'd enjoy it, I'm sure, altho' his choice in art work in the house was underwhelming.

Greg, yes, lovely - and it had a marvelous scent, which so many roses lack these days.

Ms Mouse, roses love our hot and dry climate but they have to be watered a lot.
