Smell the Roses!

Earlier this week, our studio took a field trip to McGill Rose Garden - located right here in Charlotte, NC. The garden was gorgeous and the scent of roses filled the air. They have hundreds of varieties of roses - definitely a "must-visit" destination for rose lovers! Below are some photos of our visit and a video of our tour. Watch the video to hear the beautiful history of McGill Rose Garden.
It was drizzling during our tour - but it made the roses even more beautiful, with the look of fresh dew.
The garden is also full of beautiful sculptures and community art projects by different artists, schools, and organizations.
These benches were painted by the women of UMAR - an organization that supports adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities that our studio has come to know and love over the years. How beautiful are these?!
