52 Photos Project/Week 11 ~ A Different Pathway

Fifty years ago my father was on the City Council and
my parents had a dear friend Tip Abrams, who was a Master Gardner;
together they proposed a Rose Garden for the City of Santa Fe.

The proposal was adopted, Tip designed the garden, and as it grew and matured, it was magnificent.

Thirty years ago I attended a class sponsored by the Rose Society
where I learned how to prune roses;
the class was held at the Rose Garden.

While I drive by the Rose Garden several times a week, I have never revisited;
I never took the time to 'smell the roses'.

With this weeks prompt I took the time to stop and visit;
and thoroughly enjoyed the roses and the memories.
