Weekend Flowers: Delbard French Roses

Last Saturday, my Mum & I went to visit Oakhill Gallery in Mornington to see the "Seasons" exhibition in which she had 6 paintings (she has sold 4).

Behind the art gallery are the Mornington Botanical Rose Gardens which include hundreds of rose bushes. As roses are my favourite flowers, I was in awe of the size of these gardens, as well as the roses in it. I was particularly thrilled to find these beautiful Delbard French Roses (Painter's Collection), inspired by the great impressionist painters.

It was rather windy, so it was difficult to clearly macro these beautiful blooms.
