Boston's Kelleher Rose Garden in Full Bloom Part 2

A little bit of heaven in the city of Boston....
 Walk the circular path around the fountain, under arches of climbing roses...

 smell beauty in the air...

 swim in a sea of roses...roses at your feet, roses cascading overhead...
The fountain and circular area of the garden was designed in 1930 by Arthur Shurcliff. While no longer functioning, it is a center piece of the garden. Plans for its restoration are in progress.
The rectangular lawn area of the garden was added in 1933.
