Queen Mary's garden, Regent's park, London

 I found some guy who was willing to take my picture. Here is London's best and largest rose garden, right in the centre of London. The city of London is busy with locals and myriad of visitors. The visitors are mostly concentrated in a few places, Buckingham palace, Parliament house, Westminister Abbey, 10 Downing street, Horse guards parade and of course the shopping areas. The few who are intrepid and want a different experience can also find it. Take for example at Regent's park who in and of itself is not spectacular, it is huge, granted. It hides a great secret, the Queen Mary's rose garden which is London's biggest and best rose garden containing numerous tea roses, old fashioned roses and climbing roses. My favorite are the old fashioned roses. They say, 'stop and smell the roses'. It took me a long time to smell every rose.

 They use the park for photo shoot also, here's one.

I love the pink blowsy old fashioned roses. Some of the blooms are so big that they droop. This is an amazing rose garden. Be sure to be in London only when the roses are in bloom.
