This is the second year that Les at A Tidewater Gardener has challenged garden bloggers to take a walk or bike ride in their neighborhoods. This is my submission to his Winter Walk-Off Challenge. I started my walk at a rose pruning clinic the Peninsula Rose Society was holding at the Huntington Park Rose Garden. This park is a little over two miles from my home. The rose garden is over 40 years old, has about 30 beds, and probably close to a thousand roses. This is an organic chemical free rose garden.
And this 8" railroad gun fascinates me too.
This park is only about 60 acres but really serves the public in many different ways. There are a number of memorials to those that served or died. This stone remembers those who perished on the USS Scorpion.
