Rose Garden at Hartford,CT

We recently had the pleasure of visiting the Elizabeth Rose Garden in Hartford,CT. Established in 1908, it is the first municipal Rose Garden in the United States. Tucked away in Hartford suburbs, is this beautiful sprawling garden located at the corner of Prospect street and Asylum street. Rose Garden being the main attraction, with lovely arches made up of climbing roses, leading to a gazebo in the center, I bet in its prime bloom, would be the perfect spot for a picturesque wedding. There are other flower gardens too along with some green houses. We reached the garden late evening and with not much daylight left, the photos do not do much justice to the actual location. One has to be there to enjoy the beauty of nature combined with great landscaping.
