Stop and Look at the Roses

The weather is dreary and gloomy, and I’m turning 40 in exactly eight months. Time to stop and look at the roses to cheer myself up.

I volunteer at the Kelleher Rose Garden a few times each summer. Because it’s surrounded by tall hedges, it reminds me of one of my favorite children’s novels, The Secret Garden. And I really enjoy working with the staff and other volunteers. It’s a beautiful and relaxing way to spend a summer evening.
