Queen Mary's Rose Garden

Regents Park, London, UK


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


There is nothing quite so inviting to the curious fingers as the huge fleshy velvet petals of a rose in full bloom. The infinite variety of textures and luxuriant curves on offer inexorably draw visitors to furtively stroke the blooms while also bringing them closer to inhale a nose full of their specific scent to verify it's distinct identity in the olfactory crowd scene of the gardens.
