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
