The Kelleher Rose Garden
Boston, Massachusetts

The garden
The James P. Kelleher Rose Garden is a
designated Boston landmark. It is like a
secret garden nestled in the midst of a
Boston neighborhood.
Designed by Arthur Shurcliff, a noted
Boston landscape architect, this English
style garden is part of Emerald Necklace,
a chain of parks in Boston and
Brookline, connected by parkways and
waterways.
It is small but delightful garden with a
variety of rose bushes most notably
Super Dorothy (cover photo) as it now
blooms profusely on the arched trellises
which appears to be the main attraction
of the garden.
I really enjoyed the quiet time taking
photos early last Sunday morning.

thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have

flowers, always and always.”

The garden is open from 0700-1700. I
arrived at 0715 with nary a soul there.
For about 45 mins, I have the garden to
myself, enjoying the solitude, the calm
stillness of the place interrupted only by
customary sounds the birds made.

Here are the roses ➡️➡️➡️
The garden features many rose
varieties which I will showcase
some here, each with their given
names. I wish to remember
majority of them but I find that
is a daunting task so I made note
of the ones I find interesting or
memorable.

YOU DON'T ALWAYS NEED A PLAN.
SOMETIMES YOU JUST NEED TO BREATHE,
TRUST, LET GO, AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
