Among the sites of the Rose Road of the Loiret, you will find, among others, the Chamerolles Castle and its perfume museum, the Bussière Castle and its remarkable garden with a flowering vegetable garden of the 18th century, the Javelière Manor Park and its national conservatory of botanical roses, the Grandes Bruyères
Arboretum and its rose garden.
But also two of my favourite rose gardens. First, in Meung sur Loire, the Jardins de Roquelin, in the photo, an incredible English garden where roses are magnified. It must be said that its owner
is a passionate person who worked for André Eve.
The latter was a great rose grower based in Pithiviers (his personal garden is also part of the Rose Road) and created my second favourite site: the Roseraie de Morailles. Situated near
Pithiviers, this magnificent rose garden served as a showcase for the roses created and sold by André Eve. It displays the characteristics of the gardens he designed: a winding grass path leads
through the various rose beds, mainly combined with perennials. A few shrubs, a few trees and structures, all designed to enhance the roses in harmony with the perennials.
