First off I would like to give a great big THANKS! to Susan Mulvihill of The Spokesman-Review for her wrrite up of the show. We saw a lot of new faces this year and the ones I asked all said that they read about it “in the paper:” Every rose has its admirer
Hopefully next year will be a lot better for growing and showing. This year was “interesting” with a couple of badly timed freezes and the late rain. One person (from Montana?) mentioned that she lost 300 roses (out of 323) over the winter. Ouch.
Still, a lot of nice roses (and their growers) did show up. We took a ton of photos and will be posting some of them soon.A lot of new people showed up, asked lots of questions, and admired and sniffed a lot of roses. Maybe we’ll see some of them at the meetings.
If you want to try showing your roses in the 2011 show give it a shot. There are a lot of categories and some of those have only one entry (and some have none!) Why not put your rose there?
We also have a bunch of arrangement categories so try your hand at putting one or more together.
Pics & winners coming soon
