Gadabout Gardener

You can’t be a resident of my rose garden and not get along with the others. That’s why I’m naming this feature, ‘Best Buds’! /Photos by Joe Barkovich.

Gadabout Gardener: End Of Season

It’s end of season for Gadabout Gardener, an annual spring through fall feature on the blog. This selection was photographed late this morning, Sunday, October 3, during a steady drizzle from above. If the weather stays mild as forecast, this gardener is expecting to have blooms into November. The rose at bottom right is the floribunda Singin’ In The Rain, an appropriate capture for a day like today! Until next spring, let’s be thankful for our gardens and the good things found therein./ Photos by Joe Barkovich.

Gadabout Gardener

The rose garden in Chippawa Park draws visitors to the park year after year. It’s named after Joe Mocsan, one of the Rose City’s best known rose growers, promoter of rose culture, and chair of the Rose Festival rose show for many years. Welland city council passed a resolution in October, 2011 naming the rose garden after Mr. Mocsan. The top three photos, taken Wednesday, May 26, show the sitting area and plaque designating the garden as the Joseph L. Mocsan Memorial Rose Garden. The two photos at bottom are file photos, the one at left taken in early evening and the one at right taken in early morning. Mr. Mocsan passed Saturday, May 31, 2003, aged 71.
