Once upon a time..

In a land far far away.

Was a magical place were folks gathered to take in 
the sweet smell of a Rose Garden..

OK.. The Land really wasn't that far away. 
For me just about an 8 hour drive..

But there was a Rose Garden..

With Lots and Lots of roses..

With a wonderful perfume that scented the air..

Every size, shape and color for my eyes to take in!

My eyes have never seen so many roses in one place..

Visitors came from all over to see this beautiful garden..

Red Roses...

Pink Roses...

Yellow ones..

See I told you there were a lot of roses..

I do hope you enjoy our little walk through this 
beautiful rose garden..

To see such a garden just go to Santa Barbara's Old Mission.
And right out front is where you will find it..

Till next time my friend....
