Ailsa’s travel theme this week is ‘plants’.

This travel theme gives me the opportunity to share with you a specific type of plant, roses.

I saw this beautiful display on my most recent trip to the Victorian country town of Echuca; a 24 hour drive south from where I live in Brisbane, Queensland.

My mother lives in Echuca, and these are just a few snippets from her magnificent garden.

This perfect rose was so heavy with petals, that my mother had to hold it up for me to photograph!

Roses; one of nature’s little beauties 🙂
