Heritage Rose Tennessee Valley Redux
Topic: Tennessee Valley Heritage Rose

 

 

At long last the heritage rose in Tennessee Valley has bloomed, has not been eaten by a deer, and I was there with a camera.  Here are pics.  Very powerful and lush fragrance.  Overall about 3cm / little over an inch.

Tennessee Valley
Topic: Tennessee Valley Heritage Rose

This is Tennessee Valley, Marin County, California.  Located north of San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge.  Part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area http://www.nps.gov/goga/index.htm.  So called after the name of a coastal steamship that ran aground and broke up on the beach in the mid-1800s.

Here is a wide-angle composite view looking from east on the left to west on the right.  Tennessee Beach is on the right.  This is a favorite walk for San Franciscans on a sunny weekend because the path has low elevation and the trailhead is easy to get to from the city. 

Location of the heritage rose is off to the left, near the bottom of the road (actually not visible in this view).
