Gnarled Guardian

 Inside the Heritage Rose Garden
ancient lineages bloom
secure within stone walls
guarded by
a gnarled giant.

This is a 5" x 7" watercolor sketch of a tree just outside the Heritage Rose Garden in Elizabeth Park, West Hartford, Connecticut. Visit in mid-June to experience the full fragrance and pay respects to this guardian as you exit toward the main Helen S. Kaman Rose Garden with it's impressive beds, arches, and gazebo.
