Stopping to Smell the Roses
It was Rose Day Wednesday at the E.M. Mills Memorial Rose Garden at Thornden Park in Syracuse.
The oldest rose society in America showed off its garden of nearly 6,000 rose bushes of more than 300 different species. It's a labor of love for dozens of volunteers who carefully prune, weed, and water the gardens. We spoke to one of the unlikely leaders of the rose society.
