      I'm not sure if it was a 'rose-tree' but it sure was a pretty tree. This place would be a piece of heaven for people who love roses; they have all kinds of them, here.

      It sure is, especially if you are a flower person.
      I visited here mainly because I thought I had to see 'America's Best Rose Garden,' which was in my backyard.
      What's funny was that when I went there there the first time, it was pruning season. ๐Ÿ˜€
      I had to visit again to see the flowers that made this place famous.
