Oh The Places You'll Go... Morcom Rose Garden!

Spring break is here!  I have my days wide open and plenty of free time to explore parks, new neighborhoods, and take some time to appreciate my city.  Miss V has been enjoying her city as well, check out her blog to see the places she has been visiting.

Today I found myself wondering over to the Morcom Rose Garden.

I had heard quite a bit about this rose garden but never ventured up the hill to take a look for myself.  Today was the perfect day to see what all the fuss was about.  The sun was peeking through the clouds, the air was crisp, and the first signs of spring were all around me; bees buzzing, flowers blooming, and little squirrels playing.
I started down this path...
and came upon this cute little building...
and a pond...
and a waterfall that I imagine is pretty when it is on...

and all these beautiful roses...

And little creatures enjoying a break from the rain...

Several people were walking through the park or sitting on benches to enjoy the warm spring air and serene atmosphere.  I spent over an hour exploring and taking photos.  I hope that my pictures have done Morcom Rose Garden justice.  I look forward to visiting in a few weeks when there are more flowers in bloom.
