While walking around the park I couldn’t help but notice some of the names of the roses and what stood out was how many were named after famous people. Famous as in political figures (Lady Bird Johnson), movie stars (Elizabeth Taylor), sports figures (Chris Evert), and entertainers like George here. Next to George was his wife, Gracie Allen, but none of her blooms were open at the time. I hope to go back and capture one. That would make a great post – George and Gracie together again.
