Deep South District Convention & Rose Show


October 10-12, 2008
Birmingham Botanical Gardens Birmingham, Alabama

The Birmingham Rose Society cordially invites you to “Experience the Magic” at the DSD Convention and Rose Show, October 10-12. We are hosting this convention at the beautiful Birmingham Botanical Gardens. Birmingham became known as the “Magic City” in the 1800s because of the population explosion from the iron and steel industry. We think it is magical because of the beauty surrounding it – Red Mountain, named for the iron ore, Shades Mountain covered in trees and flowers and Oak Mountain, site of a state park. At night the sparkling lights of the city with Vulcan, the iron man, standing high on Red Mountain, give a magical feeling.
