Tyler Texas Rose Gardens

The Tyler Rose Gardens

This past week, we had a wonderful time visiting the Tyler Rose Gardens in Tyler, Texas. The roses were a week or so past their prime, but still beautiful. Of course, there were many other flowers besides the roses – lilies, camellias, daisies, hydrangeas, nasturtiums, columbines, snapdragons, and more. I could have stayed there for weeks! We had a nice lunch on a perfect sunny warm breezy day.We sat under huge shade trees with the scent of roses wafting around us, birdsong and the company of family. What a nice day to remember. Come walk with us.

My favorite 
Consider the lilies and then you will know! 
I think lilies must be God’s favorite because the Bible says Solomon in all his splendor was not arrayed like one of these.
