Red roses were displayed just behind a low hedge. Those roses were backed by three different colored ground covers. Tall spiked plants added an exciting backdrop to the roses and ground cover.

Some displays seemed occupied by wild flowers. But the effect was created by a careful selection of multicolored flowers.

A large gazebo lay at the left side of the garden. That gazebo provided places to sit and rest, as well as a shaded place to escape overly hot days.
