Fragrance Garden

My grandfather passed away in 1993, but he was very big into flowers and gardening while he was alive.  When he died, my grandmother and others (including AAL, now Thrivent) contributed to a fragrance garden in his memory.  This is the largest garden dedicated to a single individual at the Memorial Park Arboretum & Gardens in Appleton, WI.  Later, the children and grandchildren dedicated a large brick to Grandma right nearby.  It's pretty and all the plants smell rather interesting!  The mint was my favorite, no surprise.

Did I ever tell you that I went to school in Appleton (Lawrence U)? Where is it located there (what part of the city)?

That's a really beautiful way to remember someone.

Beautiful, indeed

I did know that! We discovered the connection shortly after friending each other, I thought that was pretty funny. Small world, right? I just edited this entry to include the actual name and a link, so anybody can check out the website for themselves. Directions are on there are well, hopefully you can figure out where it's located in relation to Lawrence! :)
