Omar Lucas Sarr arrived today. He is the first grandson for my sister and her husband. We spent the morning at the hospital visiting with him and his parents. A tour of Tyler was the order of the afternoon. The highlight was a stop at the Rose Garden. The town’s website describes it as “The Tyler Municipal Rose Garden is a 14-acre park, making it the nations largest rose garden. The garden is full of breath-taking beauty, especially in the spring and again in mid-October when the Rose Garden is in full bloom. There are over 38,000 rose bushes of at least 500 different varieties, from tall grafted rose trees to miniature roses no larger than a dime.” Over half of the rose bushes were in bloom giving us a show of vibrant colours. The garden itself is lovely — there is a bridge over a pond, a gazebo and several arbors — I’m sure it’s a favourite place for taking wedding photographs.

There were many different varities of roses.
We were facinated by the multicoloured roses.
Darryl, Carol, Frances, Sarah and her friends Care Bear and Little Zaphie were enjoying the meditation gazebo at the rose garden.
