Stopping To Smell The Roses

IMG_4056

Libraries are for books, museums are for artifacts, and the Swarthmore College Dean Bond Rose Garden is for roses.

This amazing spot hosts over 165 different species of rose as well as a beautiful back-dropping of various perennials and climbing vines to support garden growth throughout the year. Cultivated in loving memory of Elizabeth Powell Bond, the college’s Dean of Women from 1890-1906, the garden blooms today to the delight of everyone close enough to smell the fragrant flowers.

I recently got the chance to see the rose garden up close and capture some of its beauty in pictures. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do and make sure to let me know how you stop and smell the roses this summer!
