Berkeley Rose Garden

When I was maybe seven or eight, my Dad and I decided to plan a Daddy-Daughter date to a place we had never been before.  He pulled out a little guide that detailed Bay Area must-sees and looked for free/cheap venues.  We settled on the Berkeley Rose Garden since it was free and it was described as a peaceful place with gorgeous views and beautiful flowers.  Dad and I walked up and down the terraces examining each rose.  There are so many different types of roses!  My favorite at the time was Joseph's Coat; it had red, pink, orange, and yellow all in one blossom.

Ever since then, it's been something of a tradition to go there with my parents during May or June of each year.  I always end up taking millions of pictures of flowers that no else cares about but here are some of the pictures I took this past weekend.

If you are looking for a nice quiet place to sit and enjoy nature, I definitely recommend the Berkeley Rose Garden.  It's one of my favorite places.
