Horrible flooding east of Baton Rouge

6 years ago

Some of the folks who used to live in St. Bernard Parish, down river from New Orleans, left after the catastrophic flooding caused by Katrina and levee breeches that followed.
Many settled east of Baton Rouge. One special lady who went home to St. Bernard Parish to find her home destroyed and her rose garden drowned, found that one rose survived that flood. That rose, which she has passed around since, has been given her name Peggy Martin.

I hope and pray that this flooding spared her and that someone who knows her will let us know that she and her remaining family are ok, or at least are handing things. And if she needs help, I hope that there are 'old rose' people who can step up.
