Cee’s Fun Fotos of Pink or Magenta Flowers

“Can anyone remember love? It’s like trying to summon up the smell of roses in a cellar. You might see a rose, but never the perfume.” –Arthur Miller

In the early 1900s Woodlakers called the three excursion boats on Bravo Lake purchased by the city’s founder, Gilbert Stevenson, his follies. No one says that about Bravo Lake Botanical Garden, brain-child of Manuel and Olga Jimenez.

I count the 1,700 rose bushes in 130 varieties as my favorite feature of  Woodlake Pride’s Bravo Lake Botanical Garden.

I got a little carried away by the beauty of this cluster of pink roses.  I wasn’t the only one enjoying their fresh scent. I gave Mr. B plenty of space even though he had his nose buried in his work.

The flowers are at their best in mid April, so if you are planning a trip to the Sequoia National Park, stop off here in Woodlake, CA in April.

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. For thirty-five years, I lived in the most beautiful area in Central Valley of California in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains minutes from the Sequoia National Park. As a child I moved from Indiana to Oregon. With my first husband I moved from Oregon to Colorado to California. Every time we moved, it hurt so much to leave friends. I never wanted to move again. After Mark passed, I married again. I told Vince that I could never budge from my roots in California. He said he loved the high desert. I don't think he ever thought he would realize his dream. In November, 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
