Gardens are great for multiple reasons including beautiful flowers and tons of great shade in the summer. While regular gardens are fun to explore, they are even better when they make you feel like you're in an amazing Wonderland. The El Paso Municipal Rose Garden is an Alice-worthy escape. Visitors of the garden get a look at more than 1,500 stunning rose bushes. With gorgeous walkways and tons of shady places to sit, the garden is a great place to spend some time this summer.
Guests that stop by get to experience 430 different rose varieties of all different colors. There are also miniature roses and most of them stay blooming until early winter. They do add flowers every year so you'll never see the same garden twice! The garden hosts a public demonstration every February for all those who'd want to learn more about these amazing plants.
Aside from all the wonderful blooms and plants, there are waterfalls that are hidden throughout the garden for you to discover and a koi pond that is truly magical. The garden is great for taking tons of pics and has tall trees that close off the garden from the rest of the world to make you feel like you've been transported into a magical world.
The garden is free to enter year-round and they are open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day of the week. You can also reserve the place for $80.

On Thursday, May 13, Dr. Bonnie Henry provided a B.C. COVID-19 update. During her announcement, the health official noted that people have been inquiring about the effectiveness of having a single dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
In response, she presented data on "Breakthrough COVID-19 Case Counts." She described a breakthrough case as "somebody who's received at least one vaccine."
Henry said that 98.2% of the province's cases between December 27 and May 1, 2021, have been "unvaccinated people or people who have not yet mounted that full immune response." This means someone who has received no vaccine doses or someone who is within 21 days after receiving their first dose.
Further, 1.7% of B.C.'s cases in that same timeframe were people who have had a single dose and passed the 21-day mark.
Finally, only 0.2% of cases were vaccinated people with two doses at seven or more days since their last dose.
Owners of a Toronto bar are asking for help from their community following a string of recent break-ins.
Triple A Bar, located at 138 Adelaide St. E., launched a GoFundMe this week after reportedly being broken into for the third time.
The popular location took to Instagram on Wednesday to show the broken windows, doors, and other damages that the building had endured.
The fundraiser, which has already raised over $5,000, aims to help the restaurant get back on its feet after a difficult year.
"After this last break in (and hopefully it will be the last - this is our third) we had many reach out to see how we are, offering help, and some had even suggested starting one of these for us," an excerpt from the GoFundMe reads. "We are not sure what the future holds, but we are optimistic and are trying to hold on."
Driscoll's version, which is hilariously titled "Ontario, Let Me Go (Play Golf)," has already racked up over 136,000 views on YouTube.
"Not being able to golf, and just the frustration over the lockdowns and COVID this past year, I thought it might cheer myself and others up to have a funny song about letting us golf," he told Narcity when asked about the inspiration behind the cover.
"I just thought it would bounce around between friends and family. I had no idea it would blow up like this...must be a lot of golfers in Ontario," he added.
