Idea Garden, Tyler
Within the Tyler Municipal Rose Garden are several other designated areas such as The Idea Garden. Not only does this garden have pretty Spring flowers to make an early visit exciting, but other plantings, as well.

Once inside this tidy fenced garden, you'll find benches for restful viewing or just for catching your breath. This recipe for compost was listed which I found interesting and perhaps someone can use it to improve their garden patches.
LAZY MAN'S COMPOST: Ingredients are green and brown yard waste. Water as needed. In a pile or bin, layer yard waste as it accumulates.
For faster composting, chop it up with a hoe or mower. Water until moist as a wrung out sponge.
In 12-18 months, the bottom and center of the pile will be dark crumbly compost. Sift and use the remaining material to start a new batch.
