Beautiful rose garden. I saw several wonderful rose gardens in Switzerland, all very formal. The ones I've seen in the U.S. are not as formal, but also stunning. Happy GTS,

Du hast wunderschöne Fotos aus Madrid mitgebracht. Hier müssen wir noch ein wenig warten bis die Rosen blühen werden.
Happy GTS

I was thinking of Madrid just yesterday. I made a scrumptious Paella with saffron I bought in Spain in 2001. I don't know if saffron has an expiration date but considering what a pricey ingredient it is, I am not about to throw it out. And, as I said the Paella was delicious. Your rose photos are lovely. I do not recall visiting this garden when I was there.

Vero, these are fantastic photos! The gardens look like a wonderful place to explore. The roses weren't in bloom yet in Paris, but there were many buds!
