Smelling Roses at Milsons Park

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

I had an awesome time smelling roses at Milsons Park last Tuesday with my husband.  One of my simple fascinations in life is the sight of roses, and any flowers for that matter.  I love flowers; they calm my soul and make me extremely happy when I lay my eyes on them.  Imagine the sparkle in my eyes the moment we turned left from Broughton Street to Mcdougall Street.  I felt like I was in flower haven, the ground was filled with Jacaranda flowers. It was surreal, it felt romantic, and it was magical.  The length of Mcdougall street was filled with Jacaranda trees lined up on each side of the road, in full bloom.  What a wonderful sight.

When my husband was walking to work one day from Milsons Point train station, he passed by a beautifully arrayed Jacaranda trees.  He then sent me a text message showing how lovely the purple flowers were, scattered on the ground.  My husband knew me so well, and told me he’ll take me back there so we can have some quality time together.  So, he did.  We were only after of a few photos with the Jacaranda trees on the back drop, but, we never thought there was actually a park around that area, and that a garden of roses was waiting to enchant me.

Wall of Roses

We took gazillion of photos by the Jacaranda flowers alone, as we moved along; we walked past this wall.  Then I gave it a second look and realized how stunning that wall was.  Veils of tiny blush pink roses were hanging on the wall, it was extremely stunning to look at, I was pleased with the outcome of these photos.

Garden of Roses

In the middle of the park, there was a garden full of roses with varying colours waiting to mesmerize me.  To my excitement, I got a closer look and smelled them like I have never seen and smelled roses before.  I took a photo of each rose that caught my eye, especially the pink and red roses; they’re my favourite among others.

It was indeed a perfect day for a stroll in the park.  Simple things like this make me happy, could not be any happier my husband walked past this beautiful place.  Milsons Park was stunning in its own right, with the sight of romantic flowers around, and a seemingly stunning view of white painterly sails on the far end of the park was enough to call it a beautiful day.

As we headed straight home, we brought some fish and chips at Spit Roast, got a taste of a choc mint gelato, and  watched the sun set beautifully by the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

I will strive to discover other stunning sites around the city, and will be sharing them with you.  Thank you for reading up to this end.  Have a beautiful day ahead.
