The Rose is one of my favorite flowers, the Nan Elliot Memorial Rose Garden in Alton, IL is a lovely place to visit. A man very much in love with his wife donated the funds for this 1 acre rose garden in her memory. The garden contains more than 1600 rose bushes, a gazebo, and a carillon. My husband and I were married there three years ago, the roses were in bloom and the carillon echoed as we said our vows. I had the pleasure of snapping a few shots of a few of my favorite people there today ~ The Flatt Family!
