Of all the flowers, me thinks the rose is best.
As you wander through our Rose Garden and take in the splendor and fragrance, know that these roses are tended by one of the North Bay’s best gardeners.
You probably don’t know her name and you may not see her. If you do happen to catch her, you’d have to get here pretty darn early. Her name is Patty Carr and she has been at MAGC since well before I arrived.
Patty wouldn’t call herself a rosarian but I will. However, she is much more than that. She has a keen eye for design and
she’s a skilled gardener with the wisdom of a woman who’s a master of her craft. At times, she is my mentor too.
Patty will probably demur upon reading this praise and recognition. This is her way. But for all the beauty she brings to one of Northern California’s best rose gardens, she is deserving.
