SOC: Enjoying the Roses at Everland, Korea

white roses

This week we visited Everland Theme Park in  Seoul, South Korea.   There was a rose festival on and we were glad to be able to view the hundreds of roses on display in the gardens.

Roses are on of my favourite flowers and it was really wonderful to be able to view so many in the same place. The last time I viewed roses was during our trip in Taiwan when we visited the Botanic Gardens at TaiChung in Feburary.

I love the bushes of  roses that were all around us and that they were all in full bloom.  I could smell the lovely scents which each rose emitted and it really beats seeing cut roses in a store.

It’s always great to have the time to spend some time to admire and smell the roses. To leave all the worries and  troubles behind momentarily while soaking in the moment.  To enjoy spending time with love ones and family.

Have you had the time to stop and smell the roses?

  1. 🙂 that phrase, “stop and smell the roses” seems so simple, but it’s just so profound!

    There is so much beauty in simple things in life and its all there for us to enjoy! A beautiful sunset, the sound of rain, the feeling of sand between your toes… the smell of roses! Life IS BEAUTIFUL!

  2. I know those are roses but they remind me so much of my peonies I left behind at my last house!
