Kelleher Rose Garden in Boston Massachusetts

This Memorial Day we headed south to Boston, Massachusetts. Our plan was to attend the Museum of Fine Art open house followed by a visit to the Kelleher Rose Garden. When we arrived, we saw impossibly long lines snaking out the doors, and around the museum. We decided to head across the street to see the Kelleher Rose Garden first, hoping the crowds would die down while we mingled amongst the roses.
 The garden was full of buds almost ready to burst into bloom. 
The garden was first planted in 1930
and has two hundred varieties of roses to enchant visitors.
About 1500 plants live in the garden.
The garden is expected to be in full bloom mid June. The garden is open daily from May through September. If you are in the Boston area, do plan to see this lovely garden. Nearby you will also find the Fenway Victory Gardens, the last remaining WW2 Victory Garden, as well as the War Memorial. The Museum of Fine Arts is across the street.
