From May 2017 Newsletter
I hope you all have been able to get out into your garden and enjoy the few random days of sunshine that we have had. The last weekend in April was a busy one for Gretchen and me, we transplanted several large hydrangeas, rebuilt the bed around the patio and got four more roses out of pots and into the ground. We still have many more projects on the list of things we would like to finish before the VIP planting on July 8th.
I attended the Blessing of the Festival on April 22nd at St. John Fischer Catholic Church in southwest Portland. It was a very nice event and we were fortunate to have the rain hold off for the rose planting.
I’m looking forward to seeing many of you in the coming months as the roses ramp up and we prepare for Rose Festival and our big rose show.
