Matthews Roses

In the midst of roadside corn fields and paddocks along Highway 3, a rose garden 
catches your attention just south of Whanganui.
 It was planted by Matthews Roses as a public display
and has places for picnics or just stretch your legs.

A lovely, and civic-minded gesture. I am sure that many have enjoyed visiting.

Planting the roses at the roadside layby was public spirited by the garden company and a good place to take a break when on your travels. Wishing you a good weekend.

What a wonderful thing for a garden company to do! I love the sign that encourages drivers to stop and come in.

I just noticed your note at the bottom of this comment box. I'll have to look again at mine, but I don't think it has it there. How did you do that? I am having quite a time with anonymous comments right now too.

What a great place to stop and smell the roses 🌹.
I can smell them from here.

Roses are such beautiful flowers , at least to look at and to smell. I don't grow them because we have small grandchildren around the garden very often.
