Below is a shot of the brick staircase. There are four sets of staircases, one on each side of the sunken rose garden.
Below, one rose bloom at the end of its life cycle.
Below, fortunately I noticed this sign before I attempted to snap off a rose bud... you know, just as a keepsake. (weak smile) In case you can't read it, the red sign says there's a $500 fine for taking any of the roses.
The top sign says "Adopt-A-Park Helensview High School is Proud Steward of Peninsula Rose Garden."
