The charming and quaint town of Havre de Grace boasts a lighthouse, shops, history, beach, boating, and roses. Be sure to walk the promenade along the water starting at Friends-Concord Point Lighthouse to Millard Tydings Memorial Park. There you will find not only the lighthouse, but a plethora of hot pink Knock Out rose bushes along your path as well as the serenity of the adjoining waters of the Susquehanna River and the Chesapeake Bay.
Now that I only have two roses to tend to on my Myrtle Beach balcony (compared to my once sprawling rose garden I sold in Pennsylvania), I find myself longing to capture the thrill of more bountiful blooms. In the past, I would photograph my own roses constantly posing in my garden or travel to the nearby Hershey Gardens to film the pleasantry of petals, but considering the nearest rose garden is approximately 2 hours away, I ponder the possibilities of painting roses instead. Thankfully, YouTube provides much guidance and inspiration as I embark on creating and collecting a unique rose garden…on paper!
