An ideal medium for showing at rose society and garden club meetings to stimulate discussion and to pass along timely information on how to care for various types of roses.
The photography was close-up and easy to understand what was being said about the various types of rose plants. The color was excellent and the photography of a year in the rose garden showed very clearly the various needs roses have throughout the growing season.
The musical background was delightfully peaceful and inviting.
This would make an excellent gift for anyone growing roses.
