Stop & Smell the Roses

Doug has been nurturing his rose garden since he was 70 years old. Through a little trial and error, he now has 400 rose bushes and a lot of curious visitors.
Located in Walworth County, his rose garden has become a quiet getaway where folks are free to 'Stop and Smell the Roses'; and they do. Doug can almost always be seen outside pruning and nurturing the bushes that draw up to 1,700 visitors each summer.
There are 14 raised beds among the trellises, along with a pond (with a waterfall and bridge) and a gazebo. The garden has wheelchair accessible paths and senior centers bring many people in for visits.
