Every Tuesday night in the summer, the Emerald Necklace Conservancy invites volunteers to come help weed and prune in the Kelleher Rose Garden in the Back Bay Fens. It is a little oasis in the city, hidden by tall hedges. I think there are more than 100 varieties, and they all have the sweetest names. One name I noticed tonight was “Pillow Fight.”

Here are a few photos I took with my camera phone.
