Going to See A Rose Garden...

Cordova, MD

Hey all- I'm getting excited... I'm going out west on Friday for 10 days or so... and my first stop will be in Alb., N.M..... and the Prospect Rose Garden!! (It's only one and a hlf blocksa from myparents house where I grew up)
And I'm gonna take lots and lots of pics!!!! I'd love to take some cuttings too, but I'm sure that's not allowed!
Anyway- the reason I'm excited is that I was a little girl when this rose garden was first started- The Camp Fire Girls Club I was in even helped! And my Mom was one of the people who worked a lt at it gettingit started. I even vagueky remember the openig dedication ceremony of it! Of course, back then, I could have cared less...
and now here I am sharing my mom's love of growing roses!!
So, I can;t wait to see it now and walk around in it and CLICK, CLICK, CLICK!! I'll try to get as many as I can so I can post them in the plant id !!
Sorry this is soooo long- had to share!

JSS,
Have you ever been to the Rose Festival at Tyler? That is the 3rd week of October. Have never been there but hear it is really something to see. I would like to go there this year but don't know if I will be able to. Have to see how things work out here on this end.
