  1. Beautiful! It must be very fragrant there! 🙂

    • Mewswithaview says:

      Yes. It is very pleasant. There were not as many scented roses there and they were more dispersed compared with rose garden at the Irish National war memorial built in the aftermath of the great war (World war I). Because they use the old fashioned roses valued for scent and the organisation of the sunken garden in 3 layers the fragrance is a much more intense experience.

      • I love rose fragrance! 🙂 I grow some from seeds, it usually takes around 2 months in spring to germinate. Very thick shell of seeds.

        Did the park have thornless varieties?
