>It is still a little early, but I am seeing some beautiful blooms this week. It is exciting to see the roses in bloom. With that comes quite a bit of activity in the garden. Tomorrow, we will have local artist, Bob Bamberg here tomorrow to paint our “Golden Celebration” roses. Next week, a photographer from The Birmingham News will be here to take a few pictures for publicity for the upcoming Birmingham Rose Show. I will be posting a different rose in bloom each day this week.
