Roses of the Mainau

On a sun­ny Thurs­day, our hands full with pic­nic bas­kets; we are trav­el­ling to the Main­au Island, just to the mid­dle of the Lake Kon­stanz. A lit­tle sail trip, fresh breeze  and sun­shine – and there you are: the French gar­den, ros­es all over. We  find it by its mag­nif­i­cent scent even with­out see­ing it, a poem of colours… Here is “Gräfin Bett­ti­na”, one of my favourites. An unbe­liv­ably fab­u­lous scent!
