Rosefest has come and gone and it was a huge success. I hope you were able to be a part of this special day. Even with weather issues and an earlier than expected first bloom cycle, the room was filled with roses, rose arrangements and rose information.
Our special guest, Pat Shanley, American Rose Society President, brought us up to date on what’s new in the world of roses, in particular easy care varieties and what is going on in the American Rose Society. She was inspiring! Good News! There is much to celebrate and look forward to!
Winning the award for coming the farthest was our friends from the Greater Cincinnati Rose Association! So good to have Karen, Sue and Sandy with us.
We’ve heard great feedback about our round table workshops and feel sure we will do those again! We also added several new members to our society and look forward to having the new members join us for the July event in John and Donna’s lovely garden!
