Morning a thousand Roses brings, you say;
Yes, but where leaves the Rose of Yesterday?
And this first Summer month that brings the Rose
Shall take Jamshyd and Kaikobad away.
– The Rubaiyat of Omar Kayyam
These photos were all taken at the rose garden at the Ringling Museum, started by Mable Ringling, the original lady of the house. The fragrance emanating from some of these roses was amazing, I wish I could convey it on these photos. For more details on this you can go here.
