As I patiently sit and wait for the roses to come back to the Merrick Rose Garden on Lake Ave., I live vicariously through some amazing photos I took last October at the garden. The image above was originally a close up of a big yellow rose, but I uploaded it to Instragram and what do you know? Suddenly I've got a work of art!
Click here for information on the Merrick Rose Garden and make sure to visit very soon, the buds are on the branches already!
