I spent all day Friday at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens Plant Sale working the Rose Sale tables. I am also heading back there this morning to work until noon. It was awesome to see literally thousands of people turn out to support our local Botanical Garden. With over 80,000 plants to sell, it was a sight to behold.
The Birmingham Rose Society always volunteers to coordinate and work the Rose tables. It is a labor of love to be sure. Our focus this year was Old Garden Roses and Earth Kind Roses. We began with about 700 plants Thurs night for the Preview Party and by 4 p.m. yesterday, we were down to about 350 left!
It was also great to see friends, family and fellow bloggers stop who stopped by to say hello. A shout out to Randy and Jamie of the “Creating Our Eden” blog who stopped by to say hey… They grow some killer irises and lilies!
It’s a good thing to enhance the lives of people through flowers and I’m glad the Rose Society and the Botanical Gardens pulls so many together each year for this event.
Someone once told me, “separate, we are just little sticks of dynamite, but together, we be da bomb!!!!!
