“Since 2006 our Rose Garden curator has cut and delivered roses to the oncology department at Auckland hospital in the week before Christmas. Here are the 12 buckets of beautiful, spray free roses ready for delivery this year.”

  1. I’ve enjoyed seeing all your photos of roses in recent days, not least because it’s winter here in the UK and flowers are desperately thin on the ground! The rosebeds and displays have the feel of a traditional English cottage garden, which I guess is evidence – if it were needed – of the deep-seated cultural links between our two countries. Thank you for sharing your images 🙂 .
