Day Breaker Roses

One of the most incredible sections of Brookside Gardens is their rose garden. Every summer, there are incredible displays of many types of roses. For some reason, I didn’t do much photography in the Brookside Rose Garden this summer.

In late October, I made a quick trip over to Brookside to see if any flowers were still blooming. Temperatures had been dropping into the mid-30s at night, so I really didn’t expect to see much. You can imagine my surprise to see one set of roses still beautifully blooming.

The Day Breaker Roses were absolutely gorgeous. Here are a few photos of what probably are the last roses of the summer.
