The Rose Marquee.
Some of these shots were taken with the camera setting on leaf but in fact in the marquee it comes out too yellow so one lesson learnt. Click on the photo to enlarge.

Many thanks for stopping by, please say hello by signing my guest book at the bottom of my blog or leave a comment or both unless you have already signed the guest book.


  1. Hi Joanne,

    Especially love the roses. Thanks for sharing. And your photos are excellent!

  2. I didn't take any of these either so thanks for sharing.

  3. Those roses must smell incredible. I have never attended the show so thank you for taking me along on your tour!

  4. Hi Joe Nice of you to pop by. Glad to hear you are doing much better I hope you continue to improve yes it is only tiny steps. Such good news CT Bill 6200 getting signed in only another 45 States to go. Good luck with your writing.
    Maureen thanks
    Alison Thanks and thanks for encouraging me to put a counter on in less than 24 hours there have been 112 visits to this blog. What a pity everyone doesn't leave a comment although I don't think I would get time to read so many comments.

  5. Joanne, that is beautiful! I have never seen so many beautiful roses in one place. My front yard should look like that.

  6. This show must have been a cottage gardener's dream! I know that were I able to grow roses I would surround myself with fragrant and colorful flowers like these! gail

    Looked in, looked around, and was so overwhelmed that I had to move on. But on Sunday we went to Southwark Cathedral, and happened to choose to be there when Desmond and Leah Tutu were in church, with their namesake roses launched at this Hampton Court flower show!

  8. Thank you very much for sharing as well.
