If you visit the Regent's Park in London you will surely come to the Queen Mary’s Gardens. Looking at the map of the Regent's Park I immediately found the Queen Mary’s Gardens in the Inner circle and went there. I was hoping to see blooming roses in mid-September. And my hope was fulfilled.
Having passed through the beautiful forged and gilded gates I faced figure of a gardener made by plants.
Some words about this rose garden creation. Queen Mary’s Garden was named after the wife of King George V. In 1932 rose garden was opened to the public, the collection of roses was completed by 1934. Now the rose garden is London's largest collection with approximately 12,000 roses planted within the gardens.
There are 85 single variety beds on display, including famous ‘Royal Parks’ rose, the classic and the modern English roses.
It was my delightful experience of visiting Queen Mary‘s Gardens, the view and scent of roses was looking spectacular.
Many benches are available for visitors so I decided to sit and enjoy the garden. Shrubs and flowers are located around to add a sense of privacy to the gardens.
I was very glad that I could visit this wonderful rose garden and tried to take more pictures to show you its beauty. Many visitors looked at roses and talked about their own roses. I've been thinking it's very important for gardeners to share their experiences and to choose a favorite variety for their garden. I also chose the favorite rose for my garden: it's "Double Delight" variety.
What color of roses do you prefer? If you decided to plant a rose would you choose classic or modern variety?
