All of these roses were taken with my Sony DSC-f717, before I bought the Rebel dSLR. The photos are all from the Owens Memorial Gardens in Eugene.

There are public rose gardens all over the country, (in the US.) If there is one near enough for you to visit as a day trip, I certainly recommend it. Roses bloom all summer long, so you have plenty of time to plan ahead for it. Be flexible though. Summer storms can really put a damper on things, (pun intended.)
