Between shooting Hallmark movies, Alison Sweeney doesn’t have to go far to find the perfect escape. The “Wedding Veil” actress has quite a green thumb and finds joy in her garden.

“Completely in love with our rose garden,” she wrote in an April 14 Instagram post showing her pruning flowers. “The whole process has brought us such joy. I’m happy to report our newest additions to the rose garden are blooming and thriving.”

As the weather gets warmer, plenty of fellow gardeners can relate to the joys of seeing the fruits of their labor bloom. Sweeney shared that her husband, Dave, often catches her watching YouTube videos about how to care for roses.

This isn’t the first time Sweeney gave her social media following a glimpse into her growing garden. In her March 16 Instagram post, Sweeney, with her hair pulled back and her boots on, shared the beginning stages of a new flower garden location.

The former “Biggest Loser” host is an open book regarding her health, including dealing with skin cancer.  In a March 16, 2016, interview with CBS News, she discussed how she stays in shape despite her busy schedule.

“It’s all about planning ahead, like going to the market and buying food for the week so when I come home, I have stuff ready to go in the fridge,” she said. “Sometimes I make a choice not to work out because I don’t have time, and that means I’ll do it the next day and that’s OK, because I chose it and I don’t have to feel guilty.”

In a July 25, 2019, interview with Health, Sweeney reveals the moment she found out about having cancer. What she thought was a pimple on her nose turned out to be Basal cell carcinoma, a type of skin cancer that often develops on areas of skin most exposed to the sun.

“It was really alarming. My doctor explained that it had been hiding underneath the surface for a while,” Sweeney said. “My doctor suggested that you check your whole body once a week when you get out of the shower for any changes at all on your skin,” she continued. “Make an appointment with yourself. Make it a priority.”
