Smelling the roses in Hamil­ton

RE: Nat­u­ral beauty in Hamil­ton and area

I live in the City of Hamil­ton and go to Wa­ter­down each day, to Notre Dame Mother­house. I go to work in the Jus­tice, Peace and In­tegrity of Cre­ation ( JPIC) of­fice.

It is such a beau­ti­ful way to travel. On the cor­ner of Dun­durn Street and York Boule­vard there are four or five sec­tions of red and white flow­ers and a mini wa­ter falls which I pass by each day. I am even happy when I have to stop at a red light, so I can en­joy the scenery and if the light is green, I can just glance at them, while I drive.

Also all along Dun­durn Street there are beau­ti­ful red and white flow­ers for Canada’s 150th. There are 10 or 12 beds of these on each side of the road. They al­ter­nate with red in­serts of a red maple leaf or 150 on top of each. This short trip causes me to “stop and smell the roses.” S. Theresa Na­gle, Hamil­ton
