Favorite thing: Tyler, a city in northeastern Texas, is famous for it's roses. Nurserymen from Tyler ship their roses and rootstock all over the world.

Here on the State Capitol grounds in Austin is a rose garden which features the Tyler Rose, which was developed from a native flower. In the early 1800s, the Tyler Rose was planted by Cherokee Indians to mark their trails.

On a marker in the capitol rose garden is the statement: "The beauty of the Tyler Rose is an example of what happens when God and man work together."
