Robert L. Staton Memorial Rose Garden

I'd wanted to go to the Robert L. Stanton Memorial Rose Garden, a garden of the Fernbank Museum of Natural History, for many, many years, but never made my way over there. I have a friend who is a major rose enthusiast, so when timing and motivation converged, I found myself strolling this gorgeous garden, totally immersed in and mesmerized by its colorful, gentle beauty.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I did...

The Rose Garden is on the Fernbank campus and is free to the public, although I highly recommend a visit to the Museum. The Garden is a sight to behold, or perhaps where you'll propose to your future spouse. 

Enjoy!

Watch out for the bees.

@Terry...didn't see a single bee when I was there, but my mother is deathly allergic, so I understand the hesitancy. Fortunately, for Atlantans who drive by on Ponce de Leon Avenue, there's a nice view of the Rose Garden from the street. What a great break from traffic...getting off the road for a few minutes and popping into a free, relaxing, beautiful rose garden...
