Well, It’s day 30 of National Rose Month and so draws to a close my daily posting of roses in honor of this occasion. I hope you have been inspired by the photos. Inspired in such a way that you will plant a new variety to add to your collection or maybe plant a rose in your garden for the very first time. If you are otherwise an admirer of the rose, I hope you will paint, photograph or create art that will use your talents to promote rose culture in your community.
The American Rose Society and my local rose society Birmingham Rose Society have been good friends to me. They have encouraged me when I didn’t think I could, helped me when I needed it and applauded me when I produced blooms of excellence. They have encouraged me so much so, this past Monday, they elected me to serve as this year’s President of the Birmingham Rose Society.
Rose Societies are about two things: People & Roses. Societies need both to survive. I hope you will take the time to seek out your local rose society. Here is a link to a few around the U.S. Attend a meeting, be encouraged and get inspired to grow! LOCAL ROSE SOCIETIES
Today’s photo set is a compilation of photos taken at various society events and shows, as well as a few shots from my garden. Enjoy!
