“Can anyone remember love? It’s like trying to summon up the smell of roses in a cellar. You might see a rose, but never the perfume.” –Arthur Miller

In the early 1900s Woodlakers called the three excursion boats on Bravo Lake purchased by the city’s founder, Gilbert Stevenson, his follies. No one says that about Bravo Lake Botanical Garden, brain-child of Manuel and Olga Jimenez.

I count the 1,700 rose bushes in 130 varieties as my favorite feature of  Woodlake Pride’s Bravo Lake Botanical Garden.

I got a little carried away by the beauty of this cluster of pink roses.  I wasn’t the only one enjoying their fresh scent. I gave Mr. B plenty of space even though he had his nose buried in his work.

The flowers are at their best in mid April, so if you are planning a trip to the Sequoia National Park, stop off here in Woodlake, CA in April.
