Mostly roses

The Homeward Bound Gardeners have blessed us with some beautiful roses to admire. The Memorial Garden looks wonderful and remains an oasis of peace and tranquility for volunteers and dogs alike.

I don’t do much at all in the garden anymore so I’m not always up on the latest developments. I recently noticed the abundance of aster in our midst. It’s wonderful. There is one item that is a little concerning though.


I don’t know for sure if I was supposed to see this. I’m all for experimentation and new ideas and such. But I’m wondering if grafting milkweed on to the aster is really a good idea. There’s no telling what might become of this kind of experimentation.


Perhaps it’s a Halloween thing.



  1. Lovely photos!
    IS n° 4 a Peace / Gloria Dei by any chance?


  2. The garden looks beautiful. Two of my favorite flowers are the rose and asters.
