The heat is on. We're in for several days of triple-digit temperatures, but before it gets too hot, you really need to come visit the Rose Garden. This year's display is spectacular. Each bush is full of shiny dense foliage and covered with jaw-dropping flowers that may not last long in the heat. In the Rose Garden you'll find 145 different varieties of roses and over 900 individual rose bushes. Here is a sample of what you will see.
