I have lots of family that lives near Hershey Park, so the park has been a part of my personal history for a very long time.
I didn't hear about the Garden until much later when I was teaching at a quilt conference in Hershey. Somebody wrote and said 'Don't miss the Gardens'! They also told me not to miss the chocolate massage... but that's another story!
In 1937, Milton Hershey wanted to 'create a nice garden of roses' and thus began a journey that started with 3 ½ acres and is now 23 acres.
What I love is the old and new photos above. They are from the garden's website. The black and white has a gazebo, and if you look closely, they recreated the same gazebo today for us to enjoy!

This is one of my rose bushes from a few years ago! I love that old fashioned rose. Behind it are Peonies and I have Hostas around the base. The rose is a favorite of so many people, including my mom! I thought a Rose Garden was perfect for May since Mother's day is coming up.
