Queen Mary's Rose Garden

Regents Park, London, UK

1930s

A circular form garden in which hundreds of rose varieties are displayed in spectacular formation.

The enormous number of Rose varieties packed into this garden is staggering. The range of colors and petal shapes, of flower sizes and intricacy, too much to take in. The sheer bombardment of sight and smell leads to an abandonment of separation between the senses. Are these two flowers different because they look different or smell different. The differentiation of senses collapses into a delirium of pleasure.
