We’re always thinking roses

We left our roses in the yard of The Little Bitty in the Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood when we departed for the Liverpool neighborhood of Galeville in October.

My dear wife Karen will not allow the grounds of A Bitty Better to remain rose-less. Of that I am certain.

So I made sure to put the Syracuse Rose Society’s Rose Fair in the Liverpool Public Library on our schedule when I was doing my communications specialist job and spotted the event on our slate months ago.

Ready to share knowledge.

The folks from the Society call themselves Rosarians. Cool description. And they came loaded with brochures and tips. Karen went from table to table, eager to learn.

Picture this.

I used my iPhone 6s to take photos, including the exhibit of rose photos.

Hover over a gallery photo for a description. Click on an image for an enlarged slide show.

After, Karen had a sharper focus of where she wants to put plants where in the coming weeks.

Thank you, Rosarians.

If you’re a rose lover, where are the plants you most admire?

  1. what a great plan as a way to see and plan for your new roses. i love the ‘rosarian’ name. my roses are outside of my living room window on a well-worn wooden fence i share with my neighbor and i see and appreciate them every day –


  2. I love roses too. My yard is full of roses from heritage plants to floribundas and grandifloras. Our yard smells so sweet starting in late May. Perhaps Karen might enjoy a “Betty White” or perhaps a “Mr. Lincoln”. While my personal favorite is an “Abraham Darby”. It is a yellow rose with delicate stems. Huge flowers and a sweet fragrance that would make perfume makers (noses) green with envy.
