Rose and Jasmine Garden Islamabad

Rose and Jasmine garden is situated in Islamabad near Aabpara. It is one of the most famous gardens of Islamabad. There are other gardens in islamabad as well including botanic garden (in development), the CDA kachnar garden i.e. Bauhinia garden but not as famous. This garden is also famous for flower shows held in autumn and spring.

Rose and jasmine garden includes almost all types of roses including desi or local roses, climbing roses,tea rose, floribunda roses, miniature roses, fragrant roses etc. Despite all my efforts i could not find any jasmine blooms there. These shots are taken in last week of december. I hope you would enjoy:)

It is hard to believe that roses could still be blooming! My favourites are the second photo, for colour, and the first for the detail in the centre of the blossom!

Beautiful roses and wonderful photos. I too have had Iceberg Roses bloom in December, even with a touch of snow on them, but not this year.It got far too cold and they browned on the stems. So sad to see them that way.
