Roses in Bloom

On the Granny White side of the Lipscomb University campus, near Avalon Hall, there is a little rose garden -- two rectangular beds, separated by a grassy median with a stone bench and an ornamental urn at one end and a small gazebo at the other. An identifying plaque says, "Ruth O'Brien Rose Garden." In this snapshot, the small strip shopping center across the street can be seen in the background:

Here is a view down the median between the two beds, with Granny White Pike showing in the top left of the photo and a parking lot on the campus, top right. The little rose bushes are nevertheless thriving, flanked though they are by heavy traffic daily.
