The Raleigh Rose Garden is a place that you should visit if you are ever in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Raleigh’s little Theater has a wonderful rose garden behind it. I discovered it year’s ago when my daughter performed in a play there as a middle schooler.
It has a splendid array of roses of all types and colors. Variegated roses were especially prominent on my latest trip.
If you love growing perennials, you’ll want some of these in your garden!
Now, every year, my daughter takes me to the rose garden for Mother’s day and my husband and I often go there when we go out for breakfast on the weekend.
Did you know that each of the rose colors signifies a different emotion? Find out what they mean here.

It was not very tidy but I did manage to get some lovely photos. I’m doing a series of articles.
