Ancient Abbey Rosebuds


The roses in the Abbey Rose Garden are just beginning to bloom for spring. 

The varieties are old and rare, some not seen for many a century…

  1. The Queen of roses to be found in the Abbey Gardens.


  2. My red roses are all in bloom now and I know that the Abbey Rose garden is ablaze with colour. Lovely image Monika and ideal for the meditation room.

  3. That is beautiful. I just found them. For me, they are a symbol of our Divine Mother’s presence. I knew She was here. Oh, thank you for these; because, now I know why I was brought to The Abbey. May I include these? I must tell what it means at the attic. And, I must mention their caretaker.

    Isn’t this where you stay? For now, I hide in the Attic trying to absorb some of the awesome talent that enters The Abbey. And, thank you for reading the scraps.

  4. I didn’t know SoulFood existed when you posted this sublime rose. I’m looking for somewhere to post something I’ve done but it can’t be here – this is glorious.
