Rose Season in Seoul

May is the time of year when beautiful red, white, and pink roses bloom all around Seoul.  It is such a lovely sight to see.  The variety that grows here in Seoul seems to be a type of hanging/climbing rose.  Most of the rose bushes have been planted along lattice frames or walls so that there is a symphony of mostly red all around the neighborhoods and streets of this large and crowded city. 

The roses of Seoul have a special place in my heart as I moved here 5 years ago on May 22 and I distinctly remember how beautiful they were.  When I leave Korea I will miss this time of year.
