The Woodland Library Rose Garden

At lunchtime on Thursday, I took a short break during to walk around the rose garden at the Woodland Public Library across the street from the office.

I’m not a big fan of cultivated roses – (They’re all a bunch of GMO’s, basically, with their pollen-producing anthers and stamens genetically modified to become more petals instead, which means the roses get big and fat, but actually produce LESS pollen for the critters that need that as food source.) – but I have to admit that when so many of them are bunched together in a small space, they make a gorgeous display.
