  1. We’re very proud of having had such a large turnout of volunteers on that impossibly hot and humid evening.
    We planted 2 snowy white climbing rose bushes in the center bed, 6 ‘Carefree Wonder’ bush roses in the half-crescent’s and 9 hybrid tea roses, including 2 ‘Mr. Lincoln’s’ and a lavender ‘Neptune’, in the center bed. Next June we should have a spectacular first-bloom.
    In the coming months we plan to have signs made with the name of each rose on them for your viewing and smelling pleasure. In the meantime, many roses are still blooming and we sincerely hope our whole community is enjoying the Garden.

    Thank ya.
