The Rose Garden in the foreground is part of the revival of the 16th Century Persian Garden now called Sunder Nursery undertaken by THE AGA KHAN FOUNDATION along with the celebrated HUMAYUN’S TOMB located adjacent to it.
Have written in depth about Roses in earlier blogs titled ROSES ARE RED and RED AND WHITE. Do check them out for a plethora of information on this absolutely fabulous flower.
Numerous species of Roses have been cultivated down the ages and the cultivar in the featured image has been aptly named SUPERSTAR.
These Gorgeous Superstars have an unusual hue, somewhere between a Blushing Damsel and Scarlet.( Do you recall the classic Gone with the Wind ? )
The fallen petals take a leaf out of Reality and reveal that nothing is Immortal, not even SuperStars.
All are Super Stars
A close look unveils the multi-petaled Superstars and their undulating and enchanting colours.
The buds, half blooms and full blooms are all SuperStars.
Do keep your distance and do not Touch them as they are fragile and the delicate blooms will simply fall apart at the slightest touch.
Soak in the aroma of these SuperStars and be enchanted in this fabulous and historical Rose Garden located in the heart of New Delhi.
