Ruby Tuesday - The CSUC Rose Garden

This weekend, the kids, my mom, and I took a walk through the California State University Chico Rose Garden. It's gorgeous. Here's a bit of the red we saw............. This view shows the Bell Tower in the background - the setting sun is hiding it in a glow.
These are some seriously mature Rose bushes and many of them have some pretty gnarly thorns. I love visiting the gardens and if you are ever in town, I suggest you check them out, but don't pick any - there's a steep fine for pickers.
For more Ruby Tuesday photos, take a look at the list located at the creator of Ruby Tuesday, The Teach's Work of the Poet.

They're spectacular. I assume you mean there's a steep fine for picking the roses, not...

Thanks for all the nice comments.

The header - it's my nephew, Chance, enjoying a Summer day at the creek.

The fine is for picking noses, not sure if they fine for picking anything else. ;D

The light was lovely that evening, the campus is very pretty, with a creek rolling through it. Parts of Robin Hood, with Errol Flynn, were filmed in the neighborhod.

Another interesting thing about the roses - they are no true white roses. They all have some other hue to them - yellow, pink, blue, ect.
