Daytrip Part Two { Rosendorf }


As mentioned I stopped by a little village on my way back from Schloß Nordkirchen. Walking down the path I was greeted by an explosion of roses, their heady fragrance lingering in the air. Further on I came upon what looked like a rose garden. Climbing roses, shrub roses, Damask, tea and beach roses...this garden was overflowing with an abundance of roses! A dream garden :)

Since it was the middle of the week there was no one about, except for an elderly gardener busy clipping roses. I stopped for a chat and he told me that all the roses in the garden (approx. 600 types) were cared for on a voluntary basis by the families that lived in the village. The community hall within the garden was also built and funded by the village families. In August the village holds their annual rose festival, with music, dance and drinks! That's why, he told me, it's important to prune and cut back the roses this month, so that they will be in full bloom in time for the festival. 

Benches are dotted throughout the garden and there's even a gazebo to sit, relax and enjoy the view. It's nice to know that some people still care enough to make their living environment a pleasant one. I hope you enjoy the pictures...


Wie bereits erwähnt bin ich nach meinem Tagesausflug zum Schloß an einem kleinen Ort namens Rosendorf vorbeigekommen. Zu verlockend um nicht anzuhalten. Schon auf der Strasse dorthin lockte der liebliche Duft von Rosen. Ein kleiner Weg führte zu einem sagenhaften Rosengarten. Kletterrosen, Duftrosen, Englische Rosen, Edelrosen...überall Rosen so weit das Auge reicht. Ein Traumgarten :)An diesem Tag mitten in der Woche war er menschenleer mit Ausnahme eines älteren Gärtners bzw Rentners, der damit beschäftigt war die Rosen zurückzuschneiden. Von ihm erfuhr ich später, dass der Rosengarten (ca.. 600 Arten) - ein gemeinnütziges Projekt - von den dort lebenden Familien ins Leben gerufen wurde. Und auch der Gemeindesaal im Garten wurde von den Familien finanziert und gebaut. Alljährlich im August findet hier das Rosenfest statt, mit Musik, Tanz und Frühschoppen. Deshalb sei es wichtig, die Rosen jetzt ihren Sommerschnitt zu verpassen, damit sie zum Fest prächtig aufblühen.Hier und da gibt es Bänke und sogar ein offener Pavillon zum entspannen und die Aussicht zu genießen. Und nun zeige ich euch die Königin der Blumen... 


Nature really is the greatest artist! I'm so glad I spotted this rose village. All the roses were beautiful, but I have to say my favorite is the one in the second last photo :)

Welch ein Glück, dass ich das Rosendorf entdeckt habe! Die Blumen sind allesamt schön, aber meine absolute Lieblingsrose ist die im vorletzten Foto :)

  2. Hey, it's the Gilmore Girls gazebo :-) Just discovered this series (I know, I'm a bit late), and love it! The roses look stunning, these gardens are perfect for a relaxing walk. Hope you are off to a good start of the weekend, and the weather over there is not as horrible as it is over here...

  8. What an enchanting garden to visit! I love your favorite. That is amazing how vibrant the yellow is and how soft the pink is. I wish I was a rose expert. I have tried planting a couple of varieties but no luck. :( Someday I will have to try again!

  12. What a beautiful place to spend time in! If more communities took time to do something like this, maybe there would be more peace and less violence.
