"I never promised you a rose garden"

This weekend, I went home to help out with the planting day at the Walnut Hill Park Rose Garden. Nearly 200 volunteers came together at 9am on a cold and windy Saturday morning to put nearly 800 rose bushes into the ground. (I was first on registration and later on rock removal duty.) About an hour or so after we started, the clouds blew away and the sun came out. It turned into a beautiful spring day for making the community just a little more beautiful. The garden is at the top of the park by the WWI memorial with a beautiful view of the city and neighboring communities. When it is full of fragrant roses, it is going to be that much nicer.

I can't wait to see how the garden looks in bloom in June!
