Orange Delight - Roses and a Tour of Weston Gardens

Welcome back - here are more images from Weston Gardens
in Fort Worth, Texas. Check out my post yesterday for the scoop.
I love how the flags lead you into these historic sunken gardens!

The stone patios were shady and cool, even though
it was 90 degrees and humid in Texas that day.

I have seen a similar fountain to this one at the Terrell State Hospital
in Terrell, Texas, another historical landmark. I wonder if they
came from the same manufacturer many years ago.

Metal sculptures were scattered throughout
the gardens adding charm and color.

Of course I fell in love with this pot!!

Some of the visitors looked rather permanent...

And then I spied this!!! What do you think, shall we???

Maybe we should say a little prayer first.

After you...

Mary is my favorite, I have a Mary in my garden, surrounded by her flowers, including a rose bush and rosemary.

I love the white painting and now the roses and their titles, I can see now that you are a poet's daughter! And thank you for taking us into the lovely Texas garden. I love all the unexpected statues of angels, birds, butterflies. The trees are so magnificent. I will try to send you a photo of myself in the arboretum in Houston. This made me think back of a wonderful walk there!

Beautiful roses highlight with little purple blossoms! And the photos of the gardens are so wonderful. It looks to be such a reflective and peaceful place. Reminds me of what I would think old English parks look like.
