Maintain your yard and have a garden you can take pride in.
These are our prize roses this year, in full bloom at the end of August. They are tea roses called "Queen Elizabeth."
Gardening is an excellent way to relieve stress and to exercise. It also helps to fight depression: getting out, getting some sunshine, admiring nature, accomplishing something beautiful and getting dirty.
