Roses Spring into Bloom in Spring

The photos above were taken on 27th September - the rose bushes full of buds threatening to open at any time.  The photos below were taken on 6th October - 9 days later when the plants that get the most sun were well in flower in a spectacular display.

As you can probably work out, the rose avenue is at the Caboolture Historical Village - a wonderful museum of over 70 buildings and over 110,000 items - it is all set out in a Village style, so visitors can walk around and visit old shops (General Store, Butcher, Post Office, Barber), old workers cottages and other buildings from the Caboolture area, including Glenowen Homestead, an example of the way the more affluent folk in the area would have lived.
