Rose Gardens are my Tuesday's Treasure.

Hello and Welcome to Tuesday's Treasure.

This week I want to share with you one of my most favourite places on this earth. Melville's Rose Garden in the Perth Hills. No matter what time of the day you go here it is always busy. The cafe is full and people and families are enjoying themselves. Who wouldn't with all the beautiful flowers and roses in bloom.


This is halfway up the gardens looking across the the selling area which is in the top right end of the photo.


A lovely display of a little pink flower. I think it may be of the Cosmos family. Not sure on that.


The rose at the bottom is "Edgar Degas" and the top one is "Maurice Ultrillo"


Here I am amongst the pink roses, of course.



Everwhere you look roses are in bloom. Did you see the super big one.


The Koi were rushing to be fed by some children. We noticed how low the water was in this area. They must be hoping for some good Winter rains.


Now this must be the first time I have visited and not purchased some roses. I will be back though when we have had a good soaking of rain.


Now after we left the gardens we went across to Midland where I bought my new book. I have been looking at getting this book since it came out last year. I even looked at it on my trip last week but decided against it. After seeing a ex neighbours name in the death notices last week. I decided yes I was going to buy that book. Well I just love it. So please don't put things of.

I hope you enjoyed my Tuesday's Treasure today. Melody has the list on her blog of other Treasure's to look at.

A special thanks to everyone who left a comment on yesterdays post. I really appreciate them. Pauline has also done a posting about the quilt which shows a much better photo of the quilting. The day I took the photo's happened to be the most cloudiest day we had for about 7 months.

Happy days.

Lovely picture of you in the roses and the book looks very interesting. Glad you bought it so you can enjoy it now. Did you see Liriopia's Legacy is giving away a partly made double wedding ring quilt with fabric to finish it.

Hi Bev!
It is so nice to see some photos of you. : )
I love places like that and I will need to pop on over to their website and see more of the gardens. There use to be more garden centers with gift shops here but I'm not sure what they have not made a come back. It is hard to find nice gardening books.
Have a great day.!

Treasure describes it perfectly. What a beautiful place all bloomed up! And that's a whole lot of Koi in one place. WOW! I would love to have a Koi pond someday. Thanks for the tour!
