***** Haboro Rose Garden is actually the northernmost rose garden in Japan.
It is so amazing that there is a rose garden here along the northern seaside,
and everyone must admire the well-coordinated beauty of the garden.
You can see not only modern roses but also old roses
and so many Raubritters.
This rose garden is worth while visiting just to see Raubritter,
whose trusses of little cupped flowers are loved by many women.
I was also so impressed to see them heavily laden with crab apple like flowers.*****

Raubritter, Kordes, Germany, 1936

Raubritter garden is farther on in. You can see their clear-pink flowers from far away.
Their cupped flowers are so cute!
They bloom a little later than other roses.
