The Dr. E.M. Mills Rose Garden

Visited the gorgeous Rose Garden in Thornden Park, right down the street from my house. Somebody didn’t let me know we were going to stop by, so I only had the camera on my phone to capture some of the beautiful blooms.

The rose garden was established in 1922, and still contains some of the original plants, according to syracuserosesociety.org. “About 29 classes of roses from species to modern types comprise about 368 different varieties. The 3850 plants surround a central gazebo. Pathways, benches, and plant labels add comfort  and interest to the garden,” the site says.

If you’re in the Syracuse area, I highly recommend you stop by for a stroll!
