#ItsARoseThing at the American Rose Society Fall Nationals – Syracuse, New York

This year has been a whirlwind! Our Rednecks & Roses speaking tour has been a rousing success, but also a tiring one. My blog posts have suffered, but I am alive and well, traveling along the highways and hedgerows talking to anyone who’ll listen about growing roses.

We are winging our way to Syracuse New York this weekend to take part in the biggest rose party of the year! The American Rose Societies Fall National Rose Show and Convention. Sponsored by the Syracuse Rose Society, its sure to be a memorable event.

A full line up of speakers from around the globe will be on hand to enlighten and inspire.
