After the extreme weather we experienced this past winter, we are looking forward to June when we have our 19th Annual Rose Festival under the big tent centered in the beautiful Schoolhouse Rose Garden. This annual festival is beloved by the gardening community, and we always enjoy rose-related conversations throughout the day. This year, we will have wonderful discussions to attend and hope to see you in the gardens.
“A Rosy Day Out” includes a community rose display and competition in the Schoolhouse, an ice cream social in between morning and afternoon speakers, and sitting together with like-minded gardeners in the Schoolhouse Rose Garden while listening to keynote speakers. Last year, with the hot weather, the rose garden looked incredible with all the garden roses showing off their colors and enchanting us with their fragrances.
This year, we will celebrate garden roses, showcase a community rose display and rose competition (judged by the Tri-Valley Rose Society), and of course, offer tips, tricks, and experienced knowledge on rose care. And who doesn’t love to hear our favorite “Rose Buds” Ciscoe and John enthusiastically share their favorite rose companions…and give away plants too!
