Stop and Smell the Roses -- Really!

The Exposition Park Rose Garden was in full bloom last month and I finally took the time to look at and admire the flowers.

I've rushed by the Rose Garden on the way into and out of the Coliseum for USC football games for years -- but until last month I don't think I'd ever actually gone into the Rose Garden and looked at it.

Such a serene and beautiful space right in the middle of the city.

Rose Gardens always remind me of Grandmother Green.  She was so proud of the roses the grew in her backyard.  Looking back at old photos of her it's amazing to see how the roses are almost always present.
