There are more than 3,000 roses representing over 325 different varieties in the Rudolf W. van der Goot Rose
Garden in Colonial Park at 156 Mettlers Road in Somerset in New Jersey, USA.

Nine members of Young @ Heart Club, including me, visited this garden on June 6, 2009 to enjoy thousands of
beautiful roses and to take pictures. We thank May Lee for  suggesting this outing of the Young@Heart Club
when thousands of roses were blooming in this beautiful garden and for suggesting the small Chinese
restaurant nearby for lunch after the garden visit .

On June 26, 2011, I came with about 30 members of Happy Club to this Rose Garden to enjoy again large
number of roses and other flowers and to take pictures again. Therefore, pictures on this web page are taken
on these two dates.
