Mesa Community College Rose Garden

Friday, April 6, I had the good fortune to visit the Mesa Community College Rose Garden.  The Garden is sponsored by the Mesa-East Valley Rose Society, and was designed by LeRoy Brady, who has done much of the fabulous landscaping along Arizona highways.  A full history of the Garden can be found here.

In spite of the 95 F degree temperature, the roses looked fresh and beautiful. In the High Desert roses won’t be blooming for at least another month, but in Phoenix, “The Valley of the Sun,” they were in full bloom. The Garden was an oasis on a very warm day.
