Hasn’t it been a beautiful spring? (The
Rose Show is coming!! The Rose Show is coming! Are you
and your roses ready?
My roses seem to be doing their part by
putting out new growth and I'm sure your roses are too.
Nature is offering some rain, warmth (most of the time)
and sunshine. So now its our turn to feed, nurture and
groom our roses for the show.
Due to the late cool spring weather I am
behind on scheduled maintenance of my roses. I have one
new rose that has started well and another that has just
begun to show any sign of life. My established roses
are growing beautifully at this time, but I am concerned
about their blooming cycle and the timing of the rose
On April 13, Mary Ann, Bob, Ann, Norma,
Ben, Pauline and I worked at our public rose garden
This was a very efficient group and the job was finished
in about an hour. Thanks everyone. There will be no
official workday in May since everyone will be working
with the rose show.
Thank you to all members of BGRS who
obtained sponsors for the Rose Show. Your personal
touch made the difference in getting individuals to be
sponsors. I would like to say a special thank you to
Ann Jacobs for her diligence in working with sponsors
for the Rose Show. She makes a lot of personal contacts
after the letters are sent in order to follow up and
collect the sponsor's donation. Thanks Ann for going the
The May meeting will focus on the Rose
Show. Mary Ann will present a program on "What is a
Rose Show". We will be finalizing all facets of the
show. Traditionally our shows have been successful
because of the dedication and work of our members, so
the continued success depends on each of us doing our
part. See you on May 3 at the Extension Office.
