A walk through the Rose Garden (II)

Thank you for all your lovely comments on the Rose Garden Tour part one. I know that some of you have been anxiously waiting for part two! Also, most of you wanted to know exactly where it's located. Well, the town is called Kotten which is located in the Gelderland province. It is pretty close to the Dutch/German border.
Most of you mentioned how idyllic and peaceful the gardens look. I took great pleasure in this, because that's exactly the feeling I wanted to convey through my photos. In reality it was full of tourists! Some were kind enough to duck their heads out of the way :)

Ganz lieben Dank für Eure netten Kommentare zu meinem Rosengarten Post Teil Eins. Viele von Euch wollten wissen wo dieser genau zu finden ist. Nun, der Garten - auch Rosenhaege, Living Gardens genannt, befindet sich in Kotten in Gelderland. Das ist nah an der Deutsch/Niederländischen Grenze.
Außerdem habe ich mich sehr gefreut, dass Ihr meine Fotos als idyllisch und friedlich empfunden habt. Tatsächlich tummelten sich dort eine Menge Menschen! Einige waren aber so freundlich und haben gewartet, bis ich das Foto im Kasten hatte :)

Let's continue the tour....

I wonder who lives here...maybe this lady?

Wer hier wohl wohnt...vielleicht diese Dame?

Congratulations, if you've made it till the end! I hoped you enjoyed these garden impressions!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day :)

Glückwunsch, wenn Ihr es bis hierhin geschafft habt! Ich hoffe Euch hat Teil Zwei genauso gut gefallen!
Ich wünsche Euch einen wunderschönen Tag :)

  10. What a beautiful place. I love the mixture of modern sculpture in a traditionally landscaped garden. It's the best of both worlds.

  24. Thank you for the tour Duni! I definitely enjoyed the tour :) The weather looks great. This is my perfect weather, not so much sun, just enough warm of sunshine :)

    I love the rustic and shabby house. And the photo that reflected the trees on the water is great.

    Hope you could share us more beautiful places in Germany :)

    Have a great day!

  29. Liebe Duni,

    in diesem Park wäre ich jetzt auch gerne. Alles wirkt so ruhig und entspannend. Der richtige Platz um mal durchzuatmen und die Seele etwas baumeln zu lassen.
