June is the season for roses. When in Paris the rose garden of Bagatelle is where to head for to admire some of the city’s most beautiful creations. In this flowery season, the garden becomes a meeting place for rose lovers taking part in the annual international competition for new roses. Laid out in the traditional classical style it is a joy to walk around the garden where each rose bed is a living colour of scented shapes.

  1. Ah, Kalpana, thanks for taking us on that beautiful trip to Bagatelle. What I enjoyed – apart from your splendid photographs – is that so many of these are ‘old fashioned’ varieties we rarely see here in Australia – I’m thinking many of them were heavily scented?
