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.
