June makes me think of ROSES!!

We often visit the grounds at Swarthmore College near Philadelphia.


The trees and gardens are so beautiful, and freely open to the public.  We have met wonderful people walking there, and many bring their friendly dogs.

I was excited to visit the Rose Garden in full bloom!

That is our dog, Buddy, enjoying the roses!

I am sure that we will have many more visits to share from this wonderful campus.  If you are in the area, check it out any time of year!

    I’m thinking this would be a great location for a scene. (can’t stop thinking movies..lol)

      You are right David! I think that they probably have had weddings there as well.

    Is it my imagination or were the roses out early this year? These seem really big and lush for this time of the month. Very beautiful!

      Yes, everything was 2-3 weeks early. The visit when I took these photos was actually Memorial Day weekend!

    Beautiful photos Sally! I love roses. My dad always had rose bushes growing around our house, and every time I see roses now it makes me think of him.

    I’ve been to Philly a couple of times but never had the occasion to visit Swarthmore. Thanks for the peek! Lovely campus!
