^^^ the roses were at the new (2012) memorial rose garden at the VA palo alto health care system facility. there were many rose bushes and each one was accompanied with a dedication sign honoring a veteran. one was decidated to "MR. T" and it smelled really good. many different varieties and in full bloom. probably about 100 different rose bushes on display and quite nicely maintained! lots of different colors and types, some smelled truly amazing. one of my fave scents in the world is rose.

the rose garden was much better than the experimental "food garden" nearby. it was a raised bed garden that was severely neglected. it didn't help that the beds were made from what appeared to be pressure treated lumber, which means the soil is contaminated with copper and other harmful elements. nothing seemed to be thriving, but then again it didn't look like it was watered much.
