Memorial Rose Garden, located in Missoula Montana, is part of a small city park. It was begun in 1946, and now contains more than 2,500 rose bushes, which serve as a memorial to the casualties and veterans of America's twentieth century war conflicts. In addition to the roses, the garden features a twelve foot bronze statue.
There is no cost to view the gardens. They are open from 6:00 AM to 11:00 PM.
It would be a beautiful but somber place to visit.ReplyDelete
If they planted a rose bush for everyone they would sadly run out of room.ReplyDelete
Yes, they would.Delete

I like that statue. I seem to remember recently seeing this statue or one just like it on TV.ReplyDelete
I wonder where else such a statue could be.Delete
Remembering and honoring heroes with a garden of beauty is such a fitting tribute.ReplyDelete
Hello Sherry. I love having roses in a garden - they are so easy to look after!ReplyDelete

Roses are fairly easy to take care of - as long as they don't get black spot disease or insects like Japanese beetles or aphids infesting them.Delete
